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.

Unusual Care Package Requests From Our Troops!

When you think of care packages, you probably think they are boxes filled with shampoo, soap, razors, deodorant, foot powder, socks, clothing, reading materials, snacks and toiletry products. And, this is the majority of what we include in the care packages we ship. But, we also get requests from our U.S. Soldier, Sailor, Airmen and Marine contacts for other, less common care package items. 

Recently, we've had requests for (and could use donations of) these items:

Cordless drills
Cordless screwdrivers
Cordless reciprocating saws
Scotch tape
Super glue
Mechanics gloves
Folding knives
AA/AAA/D batteries
Flashlights
Reflective belts
Packing tape
Hand tools
Thermos bottles

So, if you have any of these items sitting around your house, garage or business that are no longer used, we would be happy to help you de-clutter and take them off your hands.

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are happy to support our troops overseas. There are many ways you can help; you can send the 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.

Volunteers from Levi Strauss & Co Pack Care Packages for The Troops!

Some wonderful volunteers from Levi Strauss & Co brought supplies and packed 96 care packages that will be mailed to the the troops overseas. The goods they purchased included toiletries, snacks, socks and other items. The volunteers underwent the whole packing experience - they spent the morning organizing the items and putting the liquids in Ziploc bags. After lunch, which they supplied, they packed, taped and labeled the boxes. They also supplied the packing tape and contributed money to cover the shipping costs.
