How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 250,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2018?

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.

Care Package Packing Party For the US Troops - April 21, 2018

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas and some great volunteers packed over 470 care packages for the U.S. Military troops stationed overseas at our packing party on April 21st. These care packages, which totaled $8500 in postage, will be shipped to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa and the Mideast. The theme for this party was "Beat the Heat", so in addition to the regular items of toiletries, snacks, microwavable meals, notes from supporters, we included water balloons, water guns and even a few small swimming pools for the soldiers and sometimes their dogs!

Here are some pictures from the afternoon packing session.

The care packages with be mailed to 12 units serving overseas.

Highland Park High School National Honors Society Organizes Care Package Packing Party.

On Saturday, April 21, 2018, the members of the Highland Park High School National Honors Society came together to create their own packing party for the troops. The students organized everything! They collected the items to send, raised funds for all the shipping costs, and will take the 320 boxes to the post office to mail them to four units that are servicing overseas. This has become an annual event for them. We love partnering with this awesome group!

Here are some photos from the event.

"Thank you very much for your support."

We received a thank note and a couple of pictures from a Chaplain that just received the care packages we mailed in the middle of March. The pictures show how excited the soldiers get when they receive the boxes filled with the goodies.

Ma’am,
Thank you very much for your support. We just received the packages yesterday and it means the world to our Soldiers. We try to assemble them in a way that Soldiers are able to share from the packages. Words are not enough to say thank you, but may God continue to bless everyone that has taken time out if their busy schedule to be a blessing to us.
Thank you!

This soldier seems very excited to receive the care packages we sent last month..
The boxes contained toiletries, snacks and some Texas themed items.

Soldiers Receive Texas Themed Care Packages.

Here's another thank you note and a picture from some soldiers who received the "Greetings from Texas" care packages we mailed in March. Texas themed items, t-shirts, pinatas, chips and salsa as well as the regular items of toiletries and snacks were included in the boxes. The flaps of the boxes were decorated with "love notes" which were as big a hit as were the t-shirts. 

We've been receiving some of the larger boxes every few days from your last shipment. Our guys are overjoyed by it all. Attached is a picture of a few of my Soldiers sportin' some TX gear! Guys have even been cutting the boxes up and putting the pictures yall draw on the inside in their rooms. Its been a lot of fun.

Please send our thanks and love to everyone in your organization. We posted your website link on our closed Family Readiness Group website so family and friends have the opportunity to donate to yall. I hope this note finds you well and that you have a wonderful day!

Sincerely,

Matthew A.
