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.

Emails from soldiers

Well, I guess our Girl Scout cookies that we sent last week are starting to reach our soldiers as we have gotten several emails already. Here are a few of them.
Nancy,

I have received your box of Girl Scout cookies and other stuff here in the Middle East. I work in a facilities maintenance and construction section with several different types of engineers. I distributed the cookies throughout the section. The guys LOVE those cookies. Anyhow, I wish I had a camera to show you all these grown men operating heavy equipment while snacking on Girl Scout cookies and
throwing the water balloons at each other. I am sure the cookies will be empty very soon.

I just wanted to take the time to tell you how much we (Directorate of Public Works) appreciate your contribution. It is a real breath of fresh air to receive stuff like this from caring Americans in support of the troops. We thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers and will continue to try our best to make everyone at home proud to be an American.

Respectfully,
SGT Michael H.

Good Afternoon ladies and Gents,

Thank you all for the warm thoughts and yummy cookies. It was Awsome getting your package today. We all enjoyed them. Thank you Again, you all are amazing!

Thank you from all of Us over here in Iraq

I just wanted to say thank you for the huge box of girl scout cookies we received and the calling cards. We solicited our junior folks to see who was most deserving and we found five of our young guys and gave the cards to them. They were overwhelmed when those were given to them and we ensure your names were used for the people that provided them for us. I was also in Afghanistan a few months ago and received some cards from you then as well.. Really appreciate all the help you are providing for us over here.
It is an awesome feeling when you get supported by fellow Americans that truly are behind what we are doing over here. This is a job like any other but the amount of hours we put in on a daily basis and the amount of time we spend from home each year, it is extremely humbling to get something like these packages from you all. Appreciate your time and effort in getting these to us. I plan on going online to your website upon our return and contributing as well, as I did when I returned from Afghanistan, I didn't contribute to all the charities but as many as I could at the time. I will definitely ensure you all are on the next list I have when I contribute. If you could keep us informed of the fund raising drives you have I will be sure to get the information out among those I come into contact with. God
Bless and again, thank you for your generosity, time, good words, and a taste of home.

Sincerely
Mark H.
