Day 85: Soldiers’ Angels in Pasadena, CA

Looking for a worthy cause to volunteer for?

Day of 365 Things to do in Pasadena™ takes a look at what Soldiers’ Angels is doing in Pasadena, and around the world for our Military.

Soldiers’ Angels was founded right here in Pasadena, CA by 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.

Soldiers’ Angels has countless “angels” that ensure our military personnel, their families and our veterans are supported during their time of need. There are countless ways and opportunities where you can help and donate to such a tremendous cause.

Soldiers Angels Corporate Headquarters is located at 1792 E. Washington Blvd., Pasadena 91104. To learn about how you can donate and volunteer please visit The Soldiers Angels Website.

Have you volunteered for Soldiers’ Angels? If so we would love to hear to hear about it! We hope you will share your story and pictures with us.

We, here at the Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, send out a huge Thank You to all the angels who have made this organization and our military so strong! We look forward to joining in your efforts and spreading awareness!

May no soldier go unloved.
May no soldier walk alone.
May no soldier be forgotten,
Until they all come home

With love and respect,
Patti Patton-Bader

    What will you do with all this spare time now that your home search is finally over? We have some ideas: Start your day with song birds on your front porch under the shade of mature avocado & oak trees. Plant a vegetable garden in your drought-tolerant front yard. Toss open the accordion doors of your detached garage & get started on that project youve been putting off. Prepare an epic meal in your renovated kitchen then catch up with friends in your intimate backyard under the stars. Cozy up to a movie next to the decorative fireplace. Icy cold central air makes working from home a literal breeze but you could just skip that zoom meeting and soak in your secret backyard cowboy tub instead – its ok, we wont tell. A stones throw to Old Town, the Gold Line, the Rose Bowl, and the Gamble House means youll never be bored. Abundant vintage character and endless possibilities tucked into such an easy-to-manage footprint, this updated 2 bedroom 1 bath California bungalow is ready to inspire you for years to come.
