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.

November Recap

Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday. In reflection, we have so very much to be thankful for, many things that we, here in the United States, take for granted. Please take the time to remember our men and women in uniform serving in harm's way by keeping them in your prayers and if it moves you, send them a little something from home to let them know they are not forgotten .

November was a busy month for us and that was a wonderfully exciting thing!! With the help of two local companies, Wells Fargo Foothills and Marcus & Millichap hosting care packing parties on our behalf, we were able to bless thousands of soldiers with hundreds of care packages for the holiday season. Everything from candy filled stockings, christmas decorations, boxed card sets, blankets, sheets, knit hats, gloves, snacks, toiletries, Starbucks coffee, hot chocolate, hand warmers, calendars, you name it, went into these boxes. In addition, Voxofon and Cellphones for Soldiers donated thousands of phone cards for us to include in these boxes. The most precious gift to these soldiers is to be able to hear the voices of loved ones during their time away, especially at the holidays.

Our Airborne Angels group had our own packing party on November 18th and boxed up a record number of care packages this holiday season, hopefully bringing smiles and holiday cheer to many more soldiers. With the help of some strong, muscular soldiers from the Army, all boxes from our party were mailed in less than 3 hours at the post office the following day.

We continue to receive donations from kind hearted folks and will mail out the goodies as funds permit. We also continue to receive requests from soldiers asking for items and try to fulfill these requests as they come in. Please remember that if you are mailing to an APO/FPO address, the deadline to ship parcel post has passed. The deadline to ship priority is December 10th and this is pushing it for those boxes to arrive by Christmas. Since we mail throughout the year, please feel free to continue to contact us about shipments. Funds for postage remains our biggest challenge and is always greatly appreciated. Since this is an all volunteer organization, 100% of all donations goes toward either postage or the purchase of goods requested by soldiers.

Thank you for your continued support to help us succeed with our mission of sending a "little slice of home" to our soldiers. Without all of you, we could not make this possible.

Blessings and Happy Holidays,
Nancy
