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.

Late summer 2009 emails from soldiers overseas

Here are some more emails received from our soldier contacts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We are all Maintenance Test Pilots. We're responsible for keeping the helicopters flying and fix whatever's broken. I'm the third one from the left.
We are not in desperate need of sheets or mattress pads but anything you send we can find a use for it. We have a DVD player that can be run on our computers so DVDs will be a blessing. All of our electricity are standard American 110V flat two prong plugs. We have the ability to get goodies to the outlying FOBs since we're a helicopter unit. We routinely travel to the outer FOBs to transport personnel and equipment.
The only special request is that we have no access to Gatorade or sport drinks. This summer was very brutal and the small packet of drink mixes that folks had sent from home was a welcomed sight. Any type of flavor to the water would be awesome.
I personally love cookies. Just the thought alone of receiving packages puts a smile on my face. Thank you for thinking of me and my soldiers.
