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.

The emails keep comin'

We have gotten several more emails this week from soldiers who have received our boxes of cookies. Here are a few more of them.....


Nancy

Very Kind of you and the group. We are enjoying our Girl Scout Cookies. All flavors for all people's tastes.

You and the folks who took the time to put this together are thoughtful. You have brightened our spirits (does not take much) and provided smiles "all-around."

Today we conducted a HUGE Humanitarian Assistance drop in several remote villages of Northern Afghanistan. I brought along 3 boxes of cookies. When the children received them, saw that it was cookies - they danced. Really, they danced holding the boxes over their heads...It was great.


 Best,
Good bless you and the crew.

Dear Airborne Angel Cadets,

I am the battalion adjutant for the 303rd Military Intelligence battalion. We just received the care package filled with Girl Scott cookies and other wonderful items. Myself and my fellow Soldiers want to thank you for the everything and the support your community has shown.
We want to let everyone who contributed know that we received your package and we all can't thank you enough! Not only do we appreciate the items, but the thoughts and prayers that come with it.

The Girl Scott cookies made our day and made us feel a little closer to home. It's folks like you that give us the drive and determination to win this war and, believe me, we are winning.

We just want you to know how much we appreciate your care package and for just thinking of us. Again, thank you all so very much and may God bless you.

Respectfully,
2LT Ashley C.

Mrs. Carter,

First of all, I would like to thank you and your troops for supporting our troops. We received the plethora of girl scout cookies you all mailed out and they disappeared about as fast as possible. Thank you also for you support of all of us out here. We greatly appreciate all the support and are not only happy, but proud to serve.

For me personally, I consider it an honor to be able to serve in the United States Marine Corps. For some background on myself, I am from Houston, Texas myself I most definitely took note of your group being based in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. I am married and stationed out of San Diego, California.

The Marines you are directly supporting are aircraft electricians. We work on everything from the F-18 Hornets, the C-130 Hercules, through to the AH-1Z Super Cobras. Personally my main aircraft are helicopters and more specifically CH-53s and CH-46s. Regardless of what you may see on television Iraq is a pretty peaceful place now. That isn't to say that we aren't without incident but at this point we are no longer living the rough life eating MREs every night. For many of us it is our second or even third times out here and some have seen major changes. Once again though, thank you for the support and the cookies. If you wish to write back and ask questions, I will answer as much a I can as soon as I can.

Sincerely,
Cpl Jason S.
USMC

Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas,

My Soldiers and I received the package of goodies you sent. We greatly appreciate your time and donations. I am a Platoon Sergeant in C Co, 112th Signal Battalion. We are out of Fort Bragg, NC. I distributed the cookies out to my teams, and they loved them. I have to make sure they do extra running when they get goodies in the mail!!!

Please relay our thanks to all who contribute to your cause,

Cadets -

I always like to try and take the time to say thank you. It is a welcome sight to receive packages from home - no matter who or where they are from. Although we LOVE Girl Scout cookies, it always makes the Iraqi children smile to give them some(we eat them too). We like to tell the children who they are from and any Girl Scout parents out there can tell their scouts what a difference they are making with these children over here. I want you to know that you do not only make *us* happy, you make others happy, as well. Thank you again. We love all that you do for us!!!

Respect,

SGT Phillip H.
