Day 183: Support Our Soldiers… Be An Angel

Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, 365 Things To Do In Pasadena and local Pasadena area businesses and organizations, partnered with Soldiers’ Angels, a Pasadena based charity, to ensure that every deployed soldier has a care package for the holiday season.


Soldiers' Angels Care Package Drive

UPDATE: Thank you to all our participants. Our Drive was a HUGE success!

Soldiers’ Angels was founded right here in Pasadena, CA by a self-described “ordinary mom” of two American soldiers, Patti Patton-Bader.  Her eldest son, Staff Sergeant Brandon, deployed to Iraq from 2003-2004, and her youngest son deployed in 2008.

During the summer of his 2003 deployment, Brandon expressed concern that some soldiers in his unit did not receive any mail or support from home. Being a loving and caring mother, Patti decided not to allow a situation like that to continue. She quickly contacted a handful of friends and extended family and asked if they would support a soldier or two.

Within just a few months, Soldiers’ Angels went from a mother sending a few extra care packages and letters, to an Internet community with thousands of Angels worldwide.  With more and more merchants donating services, money and items for packages, Soldiers’ Angels reorganized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2004.

Be An Angel:


This coming week, from November 15th through 21st, various businesses throughout the Greater Pasadena Area, will be collecting items for Care Packages that will be sent to our deployed soldiers.

OUR GOAL:  May No Soldier Go Unloved!

DRIVE DATES:  November 15th through November 21st
