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.

USAF care package recipient in Afghanistan sends signed photo!

One of our great Air Force contacts in Afghanistan sent us this great signed photo of their group with the U.S. Flag.  We are told our care packages are shared in this group with Army, Air Force and Navy troops ... "anything that reminds us of home is welcome."

Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas Volunteers Welcome Son Home!

Last year, Ken and Sabra had volunteered to help pack care packages at one of our packing parties when they recognized one of the units had the same name as the unit where their son was posted. They contacted their son and lo and behold it was his unit! What a unforeseen surprise. This week they were at Ft Hood to welcome their son home from Afghanistan. Knowing that two of our volunteers had a son serving overseas helps to brings more significance to the work we do to support our troops. 

Here are some pictures of the homecoming they shared with us.

A very happy Mom!

"Care packages raise the morale for all personnel when deployed."

Here are a few thank you notes we received in the last couple of days. As you can see, the care packages mean a great deal to our U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Guardsmen deployed overseas.

Iraq:
Thank you for your care and support. Words cannot express our gratitude towards you and your associates. Care packages raise the morale for all personnel when deployed.

Afghanistan:
We desire items that can be put into pockets for patrols i.e. tuna packets, protein bars, candy, pop tarts etc.  Any support is greatly appreciated and the Soldiers of Angel Company thank you!

Iraq:
I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that we received your care package.  I wanted to thank all of you who are involved in supporting us over here.  The best form of moral for the guys is receiving a package packed full of goodies.  Thanks again and know that you are very much appreciated.
