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 2016?

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 our mobile website - m.airborneangelcadets.com, or 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.

Sending care packages to 'action heroes'!

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas send care packages to U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed primarily in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Mideast, Africa and Eastern Europe.  Our military troops may not have the super powers of 'Action Movie Kid', but they certainly see plenty of 'action' defending our great country!  We are proud to support our hard working troops with care packages.  Enjoy this fun video.

U.S. Military Troops enjoying our DeWalt Tools and Ironclad Glove Donations!

One of our military care package recipients in the Middle East sent his thanks for some care packages just received at his undisclosed base.  Lowes (Allen, TX) donated some some great DeWalt (a Stanley Black & Decker subsidiary) tools and hardware (cordless drill, reciprocating saw, flashlight, screwdriver / socket bit sets).  And Ironclad donated some of their high quality mechanic's gloves and other industrial gloves to the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas.

Many maintenance personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the Mideast are often finding a hard time being supplied with common hardware tools and supplies (folding pocket knives, mechanic's gloves, flashlights, etc.).

"The saw and gloves came today - thanks again to all your volunteers who are helping out.  We can't thank all of you enough!"

"The drills and flashlight and batteries arrived today -  thank you for sending them!  These came at just the right time, as we are beginning the repairs to our facility."

Chaplain Sends Thank You Note For Care Package!

Here is a note and a photo we received from a Chaplain in the Black Sea region. As you can see, the care packages mean so much to our troops serving overseas. This time of year is especially tough on the troops serving in the Middle East as it is so hot and uncomfortable.  Care packages help deployed troops know that there are people back home who haven't forgotten them - each is a little taste of home.

Dear Airborne Angel Cadets,

Want to take a moment and express my sincere gratitude toward your organization for supporting my Troops in Eastern Europe.  Words cannot sum up the difference your support means not only to me but to them.  These packages give a sense of knowing someone cares...care that will be remembered for a life time.  I have attached a picture of a Marine and a Soldier receiving you're care packages.  Notice how filled with gratitude they are and the smiles you have put on their face!
Many Blessings,
Chaplain (Black Sea Area Support Team)
The care packages brought smiles to the faces of this Marine and Soldier.
The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are happy to support our troops overseas. There are many ways you can help; you can send requested items to us to be included in the care packages, donate funds through the Click and Pledge link at the top of the page or send checks made payable to: Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, TX 75011.

Thank You Delta Air Lines For Your Generous Donation to Support the Troops!

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas want to thank Delta Air Lines for their generous contribution of $13,023 for postage costs of Girl Scout cookies to troops serving worldwide.  These care packages help to boost morale and ensure our U.S. troops receive a "taste of home" while on deployment.

As a long time employee of Delta Air Lines, I am ecstatic to be able to join many of our other volunteers and call my company a proud supporter of our efforts.

Squadron Scale Modeling Event Benefits our Military Care Package Efforts!

Hot Weather Donations for Deployed Troops Overseas

"Working on vehicles ... is a lot of fun for them in the 116 degree weather"  ... a recent tongue-in-cheek comment by one of our Marine Corps care package contacts in Iraq.

It is incredibly hot in the Middle East during the summer months. U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Africa also deal with many months of very hot temperatures.  So the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas often include care package items that will help our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deal with the heat.

If anyone has these type donations for our U.S. troops overseas, we would welcome your inquiry.  Some of the summer care package items we are collecting:

Powdered drink mixes to add nutrients/taste to water - ZipFizz, Mio, Gatorade, Crystal Light, etc.

Dallas Cowboys fan in Afghanistan sends thanks for care packages

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas received a wonderful letter from Donna in Afghanistan (see below).  We greatly appreciate Donna's thoughtfulness in thanking us for the soldiers care packages, and we thank Donna for her hard work and sacrifice while deployed far from home.

"Thank you so very much for the care packages that you sent to support our unit. It is greatly appreciated.  All the time, effort, energy and money put into them is such an expression of kindness and it is greatly appreciated by us. So thank you, thank you."

"I have to tell you, I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan & I love the state of TX ... And I've been a Dallas Cowboys fan my whole life. Grew up watching football and they have always been my team.  Thank you TX for all the love!"


The troops love to follow their favorite sports teams back home, and like to receive sporting or recreational goods in their care packages.  We would welcome inquiries from any company, organization or individual who can donate footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, or team branded clothing or memorabilia (t-shirts, caps, mugs, cups, towels, balls, etc.).   We had one family donate a bunch of nice footballs last year, and those were a big hit with the troops.
