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.

Citibank Supports the Troops Deployed Overseas with Funds and Fleece Blankets!

On Thursday, February 23, 2017 Citibank invited volunteers from the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas along with members of the Carrollton Farmers Branch ISD Barbara Bush Middle School Youth Leaders for a "Day @ Citi".  This is their third year to host this event for about twenty-five 8th grade students. They had lunch with the students and made some brief remarks about our relationship with Citibank and our mission to support military members deployed overseas. Citibank also donated 100 employee-made, fleece-tied blankets with patriotic colors and themes to be included in future care packages. 

In addition to the fleece blankets, Citibank made a $4000 financial donation to help us continue to send care packages. We are proud to have Citibank as one of our valued supporters! They not only support us financially, many of their team members volunteer at our packing parties.

Here is a picture of Nancy receiving the financial donation from Citibank.

Nancy accepts a check in the amount of $4000 from Citibank.

Thank you Citibank for your continued support! The funding for postage costs is our greatest need, so we greatly appreciate the financial donation.  And, we welcome donations from others who are looking for an opportunity to help send care packages to U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines serving overseas.

Barbie Girl Song - Military Style

One of the goals of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas is to bring some smiles to our Military Troops overseas as they enjoy our care packages.  Shifts can be long and hard, amenities and living conditions less than ideal, and entertainment options lacking.  So here's a couple of fun videos of Barbie Girl as a tribute to the hard working American troops deployed overseas.

Former President Obama and President Trump with an unbelievable version of Barbie Girl:

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.
