You can donate via our mobile website - m.airborneangelcadets.com, or via credit card through our Click and Pledge account.

Military Police in Mideast distributing our care packages

Below is a great response and photo from one of our military care package recipients who received boxes packed by our Dallas, TX area volunteers.  These U.S. Army troops are in the Mideast.

I just wanted to thank Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas for the care packages that you sent.   I volunteer time at the Red Cross Center on our Camp.  I help distribute and redistribute donated items.  I found your letter inside one of the boxes.  We're really appreciative of the items that you sent.  All of the items will be put to good use.  Service Members drop in everyday and are very appreciative of the donations.

I've got a few ties to Texas.  I lived in West Texas a few years ago.  We also mobilized out of Fort Bliss.  Texans are definitely big supporters of the military and we appreciate it.  Thank you again for your time, efforts and generosity!    (From Military Police)

Troops in Middle East enjoy our care packages - April 2015

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas just received some very nice letters from U.S. troops deployed in the Mideast who received some of our March shipments of care packages.  Included in these care packages were donations of Girl Scout cookies, playing cards, snacks, ZipFizz powdered drink mix, and other assorted items.  Our care packages are being shared by Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. We thank them all for their hard work and service far from their homes, families and friends.

More responses to our March 2015 Soldiers Care Packages

Two more great messages came in from our care package recipients in Afghanistan. These soldiers care packages were mailed out by the Dallas, TX volunteers of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas in March, 2015.   We still have about 10,000 American men and women serving in the U.S. military in Afghanistan. We also send care packages to U.S. troops deployed in the Mideast, Africa and other areas.  We thank everyone who helped support our military troops with financial and product donations, or with volunteer efforts.  And we would heartily welcome others who can help us support the troops!

I'm about a week late in writing to thank you for the DOZEN boxes full of girl scout cookies and other goodies.  My colleagues and I were overwhelmed by the generosity and very appreciative of all you do for our service members.

The boxes were either opened immediately and the items put in their proper place within our small area or full boxes delivered to our "neighbors."  I can report that the training division and the special ops guys nearby were beneficiaries of the cookies, water flavor enhancers, pain relief, playing cards, bags, DVDs, CDs and phone cards.  We also shared with the USO, post office and National Support Element.  I made some deliveries to the security guards and military working dog handlers --- a care package out of the blue like that brings a smile to everyone's face.

A heartfelt thank you from me and those around me.

Four more large boxes of goodies arrived here at KAF!  It's like Christmas in April!

Highland Park High School NHS sends care packages to troops!

On April 11, 2015, the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas partnered with the Highland Park (Dallas, TX) High School National Honor Society to pack care packages for two units of troops deployed in Afghanistan and the Mideast.  About 300 students, divided into two shifts, participated in the activity.

The students were very organized and enthusiastic about the project. They collected the food and toiletries, taped the boxes, packed them, wrote thank you notes to put in the boxes and filled out the customs forms, while the Angels served as consultants. When everything was done, over 100 priority boxes were ready to take to the Post Office.

It was an enjoyable morning that we look forward to repeating next year.  We know the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines overseas who receive these care packages will greatly appreciate the hard work of these young volunteers!

U.S. troops overseas appreciate our March 2015 care packages!

Below are two messages just received from American military troops in the Mideast who have received some of our March care packages. These care packages were packed by our Dallas, TX volunteers during our March packing party.

I just wanted to send a HUGE THANK YOU to you for the care packages and all of the awesome cookies and goodies that you sent us. We are going to enjoy them as well as share them with other organizations. We have a team from mental health that goes out and does community outreach and we will send some along with them to help boost spirits around the base. Thank You for your continued support and for all that you do.  (Kristen)
