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.

Continued need for care packages in Afghanistan

Dear Nancy,

... low wattage light bulbs are fine. In the tents high wattage light bulbs wake the sleeping Soldiers up and as you can imagine Soldiers get very  upset. Supply only supports the higher wattage bulbs ... is a supply delay on the lower ones. As the bulbs expire there are no suitable replacements so Soldiers use headlamps.

Yes, twin sheets sets and mattress pads are welcomed. I recently conducted a health and welfare and some of the Soldiers sleep on mattresses without sheets. When I asked why the young Soldiers they said that supply ran out. I feel badly for the younger Soldiers because they depend on the Army to provide everything.... just like their parents did.

I have come to realize that many Soldiers don't have anyone at home to send them items they require, that's where you and I come in. These young kids are our sons and daughters. They need my tough attitude and your kind grace.

Thank you,
J.
