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 our mobile website - m.airborneangelcadets.com, or via credit card through our Click and Pledge account.
We have lost our current donated space due to internal expansion by our previous corporate host.
Jetstream Public Relations has kindly generated an informative Press Release on our warehouse space.
More details are on our 'Warehouse Search Update' page (click here), but basically we are looking at two options:
1) Very hard to find - Donated warehouse space of about 2,500 - 4,000 sft, open floorplan, HVAC in large portion, far north Dallas or nearby suburbs, door wide enough for pallets, parking for 10+ cars. If you have any ideas, we would be most grateful for your help.
2) More likely option - Raise about $40,000 to pay for an office/warehouse space for a year ($80,000 for 2-year lease).
A $15,000 Matching Challenge Grant for December 2014 donations has been pledged by one of our great supporters!
We would be very grateful to anyone who can help us with tax-deductible financial donations. Any excess funds will go towards shipping more care packages to our military troops. Donations can be made online via credit card or can be mailed to:

Thank you very much for the four boxes. They arrived today; the glad air fresheners are wonderful. The small things that make us happy. All the other stuff will be great to, summer is almost here and the temperatures are climbing. Thank you again.
Dear Airborne Angel Cadets,
I would first like to say thank you for the package. It came as a huge surprise. I definitely wasn't expecting it. Everyone that I work with love the Girl Scout Cookies, Boy Scout Popcorn, and the Coffee that was sent.
I have spent 16 years in the Army and this is my 4th Deployment since 2003. It is my first to Afghanistan. I am originally from Iowa but during my 16 years I have spent almost 12 years in Texas (5.5 years at Fort Bliss and 6 years at Fort Hood).
Again, thank you for all the support being given to the TROOPS... THANKS
