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.

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.

PepsiCo "Holiday Mail for Heroes/Treats for Troops" Care Packages are Received

The troops are receiving the care packages from the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas and the PepsiCo/Frito Lay VALOR’s Snack Packin’ Party that was held on November 10, 2016.   The boxes were packed with an assortment of Frito Lay snacks plus cards and notes from the employees. The packages will give the troops a little "taste" of home and will let them know we appreciate their sacrifice, especially at this time of year.

Here is a picture and two messages that were received from Afghanistan:

I wanted to let you know that your packages got here without issue.  For your awareness, the boxes were empty within minutes of the delivery as unit members were very happy to get things they needed.

There are still some boxes coming in, but I believe we received the bulk of your shipment. Thank you very much for all the support.  Also, please thank anyone who volunteered/helped.... this was obviously a team effort!

Thank you.

Respectfully,
Maj M.

Care Packages for the Troops - What do the numbers say?

The 'numbers' can tell a quick story on the impact of the military care package mission of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas.  A roughly 1-minute video clip (below) gives a quick overview of our nonprofit's mission to support our American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Guardsmen deployed at remote locations overseas!  In particular, we focus most of our care packages currently on troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

A Big Thanks to Hillcrest Masonic Lodge for Supporting the Troops!

After a well-received presentation to Hillcrest Masonic Lodge, they have made a generous financial donation to the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas. The members, several of whom are military veterans, asked questions about our care package mission, how recipients were selected and how they could help.

An article about Airborne Angels was also included in their monthly newsletter. Several members are interested in volunteering for a packing party as well as assisting with the prep work.

Many thanks to Hillcrest Masonic Lodge !!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is when we gather together with family and friends and to be thankful for all we have. One thing we have is freedom and that is due in part to our men and women serving overseas - thank you for your service. In addition, we would like to thank all of the people and corporations that have volunteered their time and donated funds to the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas so that we can continue to send care packages to our troops. 

Please take a moment today to think about our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who are away from family and friends on this holiday. Their service and sacrifice over the years have kept our country safe so we can celebrate Thanksgiving without fear.

Our patriotic SUV volunteers are indispensable in our support of the troops!

An incredibly dedicated and patriotic group of our Dallas - Fort Worth area volunteers will appreciate the lyrics to this hit song by Chely Wright ... "That's why I've got a sticker for the U.S. Marines on the bumper of my S.U.V."!  As an all-volunteer nonprofit (with no truck), the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are so appreciative of our hard working group of volunteers with SUV's, who haul care package donations to and from our facility.

With the great support of our volunteers, we will continue to send care packages to our U.S. military troops deployed overseas.  Below is a thanks that just came in from one of our U.S. Marine contacts:

"We are currently sending out the packages we have now to the Marines and Sailors that are out in the far lying regions of Iraq (and the Mideast). These could not of come at a better time ... Please let everyone know that their support for us forward deployed is not taken lightly nor will it be forgotten. Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your team."

U.S. Military Troops send thanks for Care Packages this 2016 Holiday Season!

Some of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed overseas are just now starting to receive some of the care packages packed by the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas and our volunteers in the Dallas - Fort Worth, TX area.  Military mail delivery times can vary greatly, but hopefully all the care packages will arrive by Christmas, and some will arrive before Thanksgiving!  During this Thanksgiving season, we are very thankful for all our hard working American troops who are far from their families and loved ones.

Afghanistan:
We really appreciate it. You and your fellow volunteers are blowing us away with your generosity. As the holiday season nears, we will be thinking of you as you are going to bring much cheer to the Troops.

Afghanistan:
Thank you and your organization for keeping us in your thoughts.  So far all care packages received has been sent or given to service members in remote locations of Afghanistan and I have sent some also to Iraq.  Because of our missions and operations we cannot always express our gratitude, but I will speak for all of our service members that received them, our thanks for the love and support your organization express.
Iraq:
That sounds great and will come at a perfect time for the Marines and Sailors. A special thanks goes out to the (Pepsico) Frito Lay employees and your staff. Thanks again for the support and keeping us in your thoughts.

Afghanistan:
Thank you so much!!!  We sincerely appreciate all of your work and dedication to having this arranged for all of us that are deployed here. Every little bit helps all of our troops that are here. You have sincerely made this a great and very Merry Christmas for many here. Once the items come we will go around base and distribute to all members here.
