How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 225,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2017?

1) Donate Financially - Our greatest need is cash for our mailing costs. With no paid staff, we strive to maximize the use of donations. We are a 501(c)(3) charity, so your gifts are tax deductible. We accept checks to Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, TX 75011. You can donate via credit card through our Click and Pledge account.

2) Donate Goods - Our all-volunteer charity is based in the Dallas area, but receives product donations from across the USA for care packages for our Soldiers and Troops overseas. We kindly request that you contact us at support@airborneangelcadets.com before sending any care package goods.

A Sad Farewell to Our Mascot "Mischief".

I’m very sad to report that the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas have lost one of our special “Angels” this week. Mischief, our beloved mascot, has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge to a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass, where old animals are young again without sickness or pain. Mischief attended many packing parties and always greeted the volunteers with a smile and a wagging tail. She will be greatly missed. 

Here are some pictures Mischief:

Mischief loved to support the troops.

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas and some great volunteers from Wells Fargo Bank and Teladoc packed over 400 care packages for the U.S. Military troops stationed overseas at our packing party on October 7, 2017. In addition to these volunteers, we had a very special volunteer that helped tape the boxes  - Joe, who is a World War II veteran.

Williams Preparatory School in Dallas, TX, Held Collection Drive for the Troops.

The students and teachers at Williams Preparatory School in Dallas, TX, held a collection drive for our U.S. troops serving overseas. They collected snack and toiletries that will be included in our care packages which will be mailed in October. Also, the students created pillow cases to give the troops a special thank you and words of encouragement as they go to sleep at night. The youngest students tie-dyed the pillow cases then the older students drew pictures and wrote the thank you notes in their art classes. These pillow cases are sure to let our soldiers know there people back home that appreciate their service.
