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.

We Welcome Donations of Goods for our Soldiers Care Packages!

Would your company or organization be interested in organizing a collection drive for our military troops overseas?  Does your company have surplus or closeout merchandise that could be added to our care packages? 

The all-volunteer Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are always looking for donated products (and postage funds) for our roughly 3,500 care packages in 2017.  Our care package recipients are Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Iraq, Afghanistan and other remote locations around the world.

Nosco (Carrollton, TX), Chase Bank branches (throughout Dallas) and the stores in Old Downtown Carrollton are some examples of those who have recently worked on 'business' collection drives. Some National Charity League and Young Mens Service League chapters have helped enormously with recent collection drives.

We welcome companies supplying us with their branded merchandise - Citi stress balls, State Farm earbuds, Big Game Sports footballs, Squadron model kits, Stanley tools, Zipfizz powdered drink mix, Frito Lay snacks, La Quinta soaps, Kimberly Clark wipes ... all great companies that have aided our efforts.

Some of our most needed items would be toiletries and foods ... body wash, deodorant, sunblock, foot powder, eye drops, shampoo, non-aerosol shave gel, razors, peanut butter, beef jerky, protein powder, powdered drink mix, coffee, protein bars, shelf-stable microwavable meals, nuts, sunflower seeds, foiled tuna packs, etc.

If you can help, please let us know.  Thanks!

Longhorn Harley Davidson in Grand Prairie - Supports the Troops!

The great folks at Longhorn Harley Davidson in Grand Prairie, TX, have been collecting financial donations throughout the month of May to help the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas send care packages to our U.S. Military Troops deployed overseas!  We had fun and met some great people at their 'Bikini Wars' event on May 20th.

We are very thankful for the great support of Longhorn Harley Davidson (Grand Prairie) and Maverick Harley Davidson (Carrollton, TX).  The funds raised will help our all-volunteer nonprofit send many care packages to U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Iraq, Afghanistan and other remote locations.
Thank you Longhorn Harley Davidson!

Frisco RoughRiders - Thanks for Honoring the Troops!

We would like to thank the Frisco RoughRiders for selecting the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas as one of their military beneficiaries on their May 20th Armed Forces Day baseball game. The Frisco baseball stadium was filled with patriotic fans, and many military related activities were held to honor our U.S. military personnel, past and present.

We are thankful for the financial donation of the Frisco RoughRiders, and all the baseball fans who supported our all-volunteer care package cause.  The funds will be used to mail more care packages to our U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen serving overseas!

Armed Forces Day 2017 - Care Package Responses

On Armed Forces Day, the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas thank all the patriotic Americans who are serving, or have served, in our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard!

Below are some recent comments from U.S. Soldiers overseas who have received care packages from the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas.

From Soldier in Iraq:
Started receiving care packages today.  Thanks so much.  You guys get it.  You pack quality items for our Soldiers, and I know they will greatly appreciate the support.  Thank you so much.

Another Soldier in Iraq:
Thank you again for all of your support.  Everybody here looks forward to the packages and the items/snacks they are able to eat and use.

"You all have shown support to us on a level that we could not have anticipated"

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are proud to have sent many care packages to U.S. Troops in Poland, Romania and other countries in Eastern Europe during the early months of 2017.  Many of these troops train in their host countries, without having many of the benefits of more established U.S. bases in other countries.

Below are portions of a thank you note sent by one of our soldier care package recipients in Eastern Europe:

Our time in Europe has been challenging, fun, difficult, awesome, demanding, and blessed all at the same time. You all have shown support to us on a level that we could not have anticipated and we humbly say thank you. The time you took, the resources you sacrificed, and the energy you invested all make our mission easier to accomplish.

We could never fully express our gratitude or repay you for what you've done for us, but we are honored to say thank you. It has been a privilege to open our packages, letters, to see pictures, even some videos of the packing parties, and to get a reminder of home. We have been prayed for and appreciated by perfect strangers who now feel like friends and family because of a very selfless effort on your part. We recognize you didn't have to do it, but you did. Thank you, thanks, and thanks again.

Below is a recent Army video of Colorado-based U.S. Troops training in Romania.  "The U.S. 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team has 3,500 Troops spread across Europe."

Thank you International Leadership of Texas and D-BAT!

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas received some great donations this week.  The 8th graders of International Leadership of Texas donated  much-needed care package items and postage funds for our military troops overseas.  A softball tournament in Wichita Falls, courtesy of D-BAT, collected a wide variety of care package items which were delivered to us this week.

Thank you for the generous donations!  These donations will be included in the hundreds of care packages we will be shipping in June to our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed overseas.
Great donations from Wichita Falls softball tournament.
