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.

November 2010 notes from our soldiers overseas

Thank you for helping to send care packages for all of the Soldiers within my Brigade. There has been at least 1 care packages with your organization attached to it that have come with books, magazines, dvds, snacks, girl scout cookies, hygeine items, and gym equipment for Soldiers to use. Because these items came very quickly, I did not wait until Christmas for a few reasons. The Soldiers were aware I received a dozen packages with goodies in them, and I did not want the food to go to waste. Therefore, I made a decision to give these items out as halloween presents for the Soldiers.

As one of the Brigade Planners, I have sent many of these boxes to ... the outlying Checkpoints where Soldiers have very little of anything because they are conducting 24/7 operations with Iraqi Security Forces. We marked them as Halloween gifts for Soldiers because they arrived here in time for Halloween. Soldiers were very happy to receive goodies out at these Check Points.

We, at the Brigade are ensuring that we are taking care of the Soldiers with the least because it helps to keep their spirits and morale up. I greatly appreciate all that you have done with sending care packages through "Airbone Angel Cadets of Texas." I personnally was surprised to see a lot of the Soldiers quickly grab up any reading material that came in these packages. It is impressive to see Soldiers reading to gain as much knowledge as they can, as well as reading for enjoyment. Again, thank You! The Soldiers are enjoying the goodies. I will send pictures to all of you of Soldiers with goodies from the care packages as soon as I can. Your time, effort and donations have not gone unnoticed, and they are greatly appreciated.
Respectfully, Harold

To our Airborne Angel Cadets supports,
I would like to personally extend my thanks for making our deployment that much more bearable. The 4th ... is at this moment deployed on an Expeditionary Mission. This means when our unit arrived to the current location we planted our flag and said this is where we will make a Camp.

In the case of an Expeditionary Mission the unit must bring every possible thing they need. Each Soldiers is allotted a limited amount of weight for use of personal items. The senior Soldiers pack care items, while our younger Soldiers pack items for entertainment. Since our camp does not have a PX (store) for US Soldiers to acquire personal items they attempt to order what they need from on-line stores. The items you provide help with the urgent need between delivery times and those items that are hard to acquire anytime.

Hello, how is everybody? We are doing okay, I guess (really, we’re blessed, thanks to you all) ... We are hurting on the body washes that you all send (we’re out). Also dialing access anymore). I can’t think of anything else. Whatever eye drops, medicated lip balm (carmex in a chap stick style), and calling cards (we don’t have as much free else that you think of (that is if you send anything), just send it on. We love ya’ll and we thank ya’ll very much. God bless and be good.
