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.

Notes and Christmas requests from Mideast

Message just received from one of our good soldiers in the Mideast:

"Yes, we finally delivered all the school supplies y'all donated to a local school outside our base (Afghanistan). We first separated the school supplies and filled over 400 little book bags. The bags were then loaded with a forklift onto a LMTV (big truck) and we convoyed into the city where we were able to visit with the children and distribute the bags. It was a great experience and I have mailed y'all pictures so you once again can see where your efforts go and how many people enjoy them!

Thank you for the Veteran's Day wishes and the care packages with the DVDs. That was so nice. And y'all are welcome! Sometimes remembering the people back in the Real World and how much they appreciate what we are doing is the only thing that keeps us going> :-)

Yes, I did receive the boxes with the kids' pictures and cold weather items. I have yet to respond to the kids, but I have all there pics and letters up for the Soldiers to enjoy.

Of course I do not mind the multitude of boxes. We are continually hand delivering care packages as we visit those less fortunate bases. And for Thanksgiving, my Brigade Commander is travelling to many of those bases in order to spread Holiday Cheer and I have been asked to ride along. I plan on bringing as many items as I can carry and fit on the Blackhawks :-)

Holiday items and cold weather items would be great right about now. Yes, I can distribute all those wonderful stockings and black is the only authorized color we may wear in hats and gloves. And any black gloves are appreciated. And I love the Insulated Black Hats that were sent - those are awesome! Hand warmers are great too.

Oh, and at the beginning of the deployment y'all sent some Carmello candy bars that were purchased as fundraisers and the pilots loved them! Since the pilots help me so much with traveling and getting care packages to Soldiers, I try to go out of my way for them as well. Anyway, if anyone happens to donate more of the Carmello candy bars, would you please send them my way and I'll make sure the pilots receive them? Thanks.

Overall, we have just entered our 9-month of being deployed and with 6-more months to go and the Holidays coming-up, we are stressed and tired, too include myself. But we are coping and with continued support form people like y'all, I'm sure we'll be fine :-)

Hope y'all are doing well and enjoy the upcoming Holiday Season!"
