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.

Updates on Christmas mailings

Over 50 people showed up at our main Christmas packing party at Brookhaven Country Club. We packed a record 252 boxes in one evening.

The next morning we made a run to the local post office and shipped 324 cartons (72 packed prior to the main packing party) to our soldiers overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq. Total mailing costs were a bit under $5,000, and our greatest need continues to be funds for postage costs.

After mailing the above, we also mailed an additional 700 larger Christmas stockings in 62 large boxes. Items in this shipment included black beanie hats, Santa hats, mini-stockings and assorted Christmas decorations for a MWR (morale, welfare and recreation) office in Aghanistan.

In a third mailing, another 82 boxes were shipped that included mini-stockings and phone cards.

Including additional small shipments we made to specific units, 506 boxes were shipped to arrive this Christmas season in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Thanks to all who helped us send our care packages to American soldiers.
