Operation Top Knot

Who We Are and What We Do

Operation Top Knot is a program of Soldiers’ Angels created to provide baby showers for military families to help ease the emotional and financial stresses of military life. Due to the difficulty of deployments on military families, Operation Top Knot is primarily focused on serving expectant spouses of deployed service members. Operation Top Knot also serves active duty female service members.

Our dedicated volunteers knit, crochet, sew, quilt, and design blankets, booties, hats, onesies, bibs, and many more homemade gifts. We also assemble and deliver gift baskets full of goodies such as bottles, diapers, onesies, pacifiers, washcloths, grooming kits, and more.

Each new/expectant mother will receive a virtual baby shower from Angels across the country.

How to Submit a Family for Support

Do you know a military family Operation Top Knot should help? To receive Top Knot support, a family must: 1) Have a deployed parent or be an active duty female service member AND 2) be expecting a child OR have a child under the age of two.

(Operation Top Knot occasionally makes exceptions by also serving new/expectant military moms who need extra support due to special circumstances even if her husband is not deployed).

If you know of a family that meets the above criteria, please click here to submit them for support!
