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 2014?

1) Donate Financially - Our greatest need is cash for our mailing costs. With no paid staff and donated warehouse space, 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.

VanaPain and Shave Secret send great donations!

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are excited to have received some great donations of VanaPain Liquid Pain Reliever (GM Pharmaceuticals) and Shave Secret (USA King's Crossing).  Both products will go great in our care packages for U.S. military troops serving overseas! 

VanaPain provides up to 6 hours of relief from backaches, headaches, minor arthritis pain, menstrual cramps and muscle aches.  As we cannot ship aerosol shave cream in our care packages, Shave Secret is a great non-aerosol shaving oil product that the troops will love.  Pain relief products and shaving products are two categories of items that are often requested by Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.

Video tribute to our 2014 care package volunteers!

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are proud to have had the support of several hundred Dallas - Fort Worth area volunteers in 2014.  Behind every care package, is the work of dedicated volunteers who have collected donations, transported boxes, sorted products, sent messages of support to the troops, packed, shipped, and handled administrative tasks.  As an all-volunteer nonprofit, we are especially thankful for everyone who has assisted in our care package efforts.

The video below is a short tribute to the many hard working volunteers who have helped us ship care packages to our U.S. military troops serving overseas!

Thanks for 2014 support of Christmas care packages!

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas would like to thank those who recently provided financial and product donations, as well as personal messages to U.S. military troops serving overseas.  We thank the good people of Vista Ridge United Methodist Church (Lewisville, TX) for some wonderful donations of Christmas cards through their Day of Service program.  We also thank Idea Fountain (Dallas, TX) for some much appreciated product donations for our care packages.

The Christmas cards and products will be included in our Christmas care packages going out to American Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen in Afghanistan, Africa, Mideast and other remote areas. Our Dallas area volunteers are prepping now for our mid-November packing party, during which our Christmas care packages will be shipped.

Thanks JCPenney employees for your care package donations!

The patriotic supporters of JCPenney's HQ in Plano held a fun collection event at their local Plano Kroger store and donated a portion of their collections for care packages to U.S. military personnel serving overseas.  The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are proud to have received the donations and will ship these toiletries, foods, snacks and other items to American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan, Mideast and other overseas bases.

We thank JCPenney employees for repeatedly helping us at volunteer events and with financial and product donations!  We recently received some great Christmas care package donations from JCPenney in New York.  And thank you Kroger for your continued support of the military!

One of the best care packages he has EVER received

Our October care packages are still arriving in Afghanistan, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Below are some great replies from U.S. Soldiers who have received care packages from the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas. As we prepare to ship our Christmas care packages, we welcome financial and product donations from across the USA, and continued support from our Dallas - Fort Worth area volunteers.

I can’t tell you how many compliments I have received on those care packages you sent us. Thankfully, they just arrived and got here in one piece. One of our NCOs said it is one of the best care packages he has EVER received, and this is not his first deployment!

Thank you again for your continued support, it means the world.  All the guys are smiling when we give them one of your packages. We got the Halloween decorations today too! That was really exciting. We hung up the lights and other decorations.

YES - our Soldiers were excited to get the items.  You have a wonderful organization and I really appreciate all that you do for our Soldiers.

Africa

... when we opened YOUR box, it was decorated with colored paper inside with hearts, candy and personal drawings......... it hit our hearts. THAT BOX is the epitome of what a care package is, simple, basic but stuffed with more "Care" than goody's. Nothing better describes how we felt when we received your care package.
 

I know it is more than just boxing up things to ship. You all took time away from your own Families and other daily tasks to give to us. Again. It gives us more drive to see that we have that support from other people just like us, at home.
Again, one more Deeply Sincere, Thank You!
From the entire Medical Section (Afghanistan)
