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.

Donation suggestions - Base Attack

Just last night around 2:00am we had our first base attack (at our new Afghanistan base). When that happens, a siren goes off and then just like in MASH, over the intercom it is announced for everyone to take cover in a bunker until further notice. It lasted about 2-hours until they finally announced "all clear." Yes, just a little different than in the "Real World."

Oh, you will be loved by all once those bedding items arrive! As of now, most of my unit is sleeping on old Army cots because the unit we are replacing has not departed yet because of bad weather so everything is overcrowded.

In my platoon we have 20-Soldiers (15-male/5-female). As of now, any comfort items would be appreciated: the bedding items, snacks, general hygiene items, and shower shoes small/medium/large any color (though we have showers they are not the cleanest so we wear all rubber flipflops, which we refer to as shower shoes, and I believe since Summer is coming that Hobby Lobby should be carrying them for like 2 for $1).

Thanks again! And I hope things are going well for you and the Cadets back in the "Real World!"
