Holiday Community Partners work with us to provide support to military families, wounded heroes, deployed service members and veterans during the holiday season.
Community Partners team with Soldiers’ Angels to provide support to military families, wounded heroes, deployed service members and veterans. They can be individuals, families, civic groups, businesses, churches, schools, scouts, sororities, or youth groups who have a desire to serve military families.
Holiday Community Partners work specifically during the holiday season to provide cards, letters, and stuffed stockings for our troops and veterans.
As combat deployments have drawn down many charities, including Soldiers' Angels, have discontinued the acceptance of holiday cards and letters to the troops- the volume of cards and letters exceeded our distribution abilities.
While most charities will not, Soldiers' Angels will continue to accept your holiday cards and letters from our Holiday Community Partner members only! Each card and/or letter must be placed into a stocking filled with goodies for our troops and veterans. Soldiers' Angels will deliver your stockings to a deployed service member or veteran patient.
Soldiers' Angels has created collection campaigns throughout the year as an opportunity for individuals, businesses, and organizations to come together and give back to our troops and veterans. These collection campaigns are meant to be held in a way that general members of the public (ie, your friends, family, classmates, co-workers, etc.) can donate to the campaign. If you are hosting a collection, please do not solicit cash or in-kind donations from retailers, manufacturers, large corporations, or any other business entity. Due to the nature of those requests and the paperwork involved, solicitation of donations must come directly from Soldiers' Angels. In most cases, we already have a relationship established with many of the major businesses. If you happen to have a connection at a retailer, manufacturer, large corporation, or other business entity that you think would be willing to donate cash or in-kind items to Soldiers' Angels, please reach out to us and we would be happy to contact them.

Besides a card and/or letter in each stocking, stockings should also include any combination of the following:
All food items should be store-bought. If you are interested in baking, please check out the Soldiers' Angels Angel Baker Team.
Please AVOID putting the following items in the stockings:
Stockings need to be fastened at the top. Please leave approximately 3-4” from the top to secure items. Suggested methods:
Please ensure you carefully pack the stockings with newspaper, packing peanuts, or bubble wrap to ensure minimal damage to stockings during shipping. Please do not ship in extra-large boxes and keep box weight to less than 40 pounds.
Please remember to enclose either a small card or handwritten note inside the stocking to let the service member or veteran know you’re thinking of them.
