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, 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.
--- WE NEED HELP IN FINDING A NEW WAREHOUSE SPACE ! ---
We have lost our current donated space due to internal expansion by our previous corporate host.
Jetstream Public Relations has kindly generated an informative Press Release on our warehouse space.
More details are on our 'Warehouse Search Update' page (click here), but basically we are looking at two options:

1) Very hard to find - Donated warehouse space of about 2,500 - 4,000 sft, open floorplan, HVAC in large portion, far north Dallas or nearby suburbs, door wide enough for pallets, parking for 10+ cars. If you have any ideas, we would be most grateful for your help.

2) More likely option - Raise about $40,000 to pay for an office/warehouse space for a year ($80,000 for 2-year lease).
A $15,000 Matching Challenge Grant for December 2014 donations has been pledged by one of our great supporters!
We would be very grateful to anyone who can help us with tax-deductible financial donations.
Any excess funds will go towards shipping more care packages to our military troops. Donations can be made online via credit card or can be mailed to:

Happy Memorial Weekend!!

With the passing of Armed Forces Day and with Memorial weekend approaching, let's not forget the many. many men and women who have served or are currently serving in our armed forces. Without their sacrifices, we would not be able to have the freedoms that we, so often, take for granted and enjoy. To all of you wonderful soldiers out there, we salute you!!

I also want to take the time to thank the Pease family of Haddonfield, NJ for their generous donation of a PS2 gaming system. One lucky platoon will be so surprised when they receive this wonderful gift. When the soldiers get down time, it is a wonderful way for them to forget the rigors of war and to get their minds off of missing home.

Another thanks goes to Faith Ellis for her donation of bags for our treats to the soldiers at DFW airport. These treats help the soldiers as they return to their tour and help them to know that they are appreciated.

Thanks to Starbucks at the Kroger grocery store for your large donation of coffee. It is one of the most requested items and definitely a hit! Keep it coming!!

We continue to receive heartwarming letters and emails from the soldiers for the cookies we have sent but we still have cases upon cases waiting to be devoured by other troops. We need your help in sending out these cookies. For just $30, you can help sponsor a large package containing 32-35 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to be sent to one of our platoons. Just imagine working in the desert, after a long, hot day with all your military gear on and coming back to camp and opening up a box of Girl Scout cookies. What could be more American and remind you of home than Girl Scout cookies and Starbucks coffee!!
