1) Donate Financially - Our greatest need is cash for our mailing costs. With no paid staff and donated warehouse space, 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.
2014 GIRL SCOUT COOKIES Project
We should receive 15,000+ Girl Scout Cookie boxes in March, 2014. We would greatly appreciate financial donations in any amount to help us pay for the shipping costs (about $1 will ship one box). More info can be found on our Girl Scout Cookie Project page.
We typically hook up a Zebra LP 2844 thermal printer (could use one of those as well), mouse, and sometimes a larger keyboard through USB ports. So three USB ports would be nice. Wireless capability and at least a small hard drive is needed. It doesn't have to be fancy to handle our online postage software. We have a volunteer that works as a bank security tech that can properly wipe your hard drive info, if needed.
If you, or your company, have updated to newer computers, we could certainly put your old laptop to good use. We are located in the Dallas, Texas area, with donated warehouse space in Irving. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charity, and your donation would be tax deductible. We can be reached at email@example.com
Their kids donated a huge number of beautifully hand decorated patriotic frisbees (4 shown in photo). And a large quantity of foiled tuna packs along with cash donations for postage were received for our care packages for troops in Afghanistan. A big thanks to Denise in Cleveland for coordinating the Tuna Fish Friday events.
Finley & Co., LPA and Retail Maintenance plan on continuing to support our care package efforts in the future, and we thank them greatly for their support of our U.S. troops overseas.

We thank Hyatt Hotels and the meeting planners for their generous donation of toiletries and other care package items. The donations will be included in our care packages for U.S. troops serving overseas.
It was a huge success, filling about 200 large boxes of donations (about 7,000 items). Other generous patrons donated much needed funds that will be used for the shipment of these goods.
Along with our Angel volunteers, members from The Expendables Motorcycle Club, and the Plano and Prestonwood Young Men's Service League chapters came to help. Our biggest "THANKS" goes out to the Hebron High NJROTC that sent cadets to all 5 stores to work side by side with our teams the entire day. Having these exemplary young men/women in uniforms truly added to the atmosphere and served as a gentle reminder of the need to remember our deployed troops still serving in harm's way.
Lastly, "thanks" goes out KLTY radio (94.9 FM) that came to the Carrollton location to air live for part of the day and for their promotional spots leading up to the event. Below are some of the photos from our event. Many more photos can be seen in our Featured Pages section.
