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.

Here a call, There a call, Everywhere a call-call

We all know that being away from loved ones for long periods of time is tough. One of the few great pleasures that our heros in Iraq and Afghanistan have is to have the ability to talk to their families by phone. But the calls are not free. Earlier this year we contacted the "Cell phones for soldiers" program that allows people to recycle old phones for calling cards. We asked for some cards that could go into the packages we planned to send for Christmas. We didn't hear back from them, so we assumed it was a bust.

Lo-and-behold, a box arrives at our mailbox last week via US mail. Inside were 675 one hundred minute(100) AT&T calling cards. The return address on the box was from "Cell Phones for Soldiers" but there was no letter, business card, or any other acknowledgement inside. Just the phone cards. Because of their blessings to us, we will be able to bless 675 lonely soldiers and their families with voices of their loved ones for Christmas.

We are looking into the opportunities for us to collect old cell phones among our group and donors. This may, perhaps, allow us to get even more calling cards for our heros.

Thank you "Cell Phones for Soldiers" for this wonderful program!!
