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.

May 2009 Reminder Of Who We Are Supporting

Nancy,We received several more packages this past week, but on Wednesday, two of the people in my office were killed by an IED while driving to a meeting at the main airport in Bagram (Afghanistan). The lady who sat in the desk behind mine was killed about an hour after I said good morning ... dealing with getting the car turned over, extracting the bodies, and disarming the other bombs in the road takes its toll. I have lost five people since I arrived here and each one gets tougher.

You will be glad to know that the mattress pads were a big hit. When I gave one to the guy who was the first one to reach the car after the explosion, his eyes lit up and he forgot about the whole event for just a few seconds, but every little bit helps. Sometimes it is hard to dig deep and find that one little thing that helps you keep going. I just want you to know that the support you give people you may never meet really does mean something.
