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.

June 2011 responses from soldiers overseas

Nancy,
We received the OTHER HALF of the shipment last weekend. Holy Smokes, the quantity, quality, and thoughtfulness were simply "over the top". We shared with our Marine colleagues on the FOB, who were quite happy to partake. Good Times for many. An extra bonus for the guys comes simply from opening the boxes, as we don't get mail very often. Their faces just light up!

The salsa, chips and popcorn are very popular, as are the meal bars, supplements, and high protein snacks... well, food in general. These guys have changed from the overwhelming preference for sweets from days gone by (although they still quite like them). Guess I'm getting old (!).

We got a kick out of the sombreros ...

We have plenty of toiletries and organizers, at least for the next couple of months. My wife, the 'Skins Fan, thinks we have too many Cowboys jerseys!! On the other hand, we are developing a soft spot for Texas with all the kindness some of its citizens are showering my crew and the Marines. We may just have to check it out (we retire from the Navy in DEC).

My continued thanks to you and your organization,
Chuck

If not too late to ask...if we could get coffee filters (standard flat bottom basket, 12 cup) and powdered creamer (regular and French vanilla) it would be great.
Many thanks, Chuck

Actually, I think there are a lot of Dallas fans (or Miami haters) around here. Just make sure that shirt is a XXL. It is waaaayyyyy too hot around here for close fitting shirts. Also we have received 7 boxes of the 10. Hopefully we will receive the other 3 real soon. You all enjoy the Championship. It has been a long time coming. Thanks again ... Ricky

Nancy,
The boxes arrived today, what an overwhelming show of love. I can't say enough about the kindness and generosity of your group. The men are thrilled with all the items.

Dear Airborne Angel Cadets,

Thank you for the two large boxes filled with Girl Scout Cookies, coffee and Phone cards. We are a mix of Air Force, Army and Navy Engineers who go out to other locations to build new facilities or fix problems they may have. My times the guys are living out of their bag going from place to place. The are extremely grateful when they return to our main base (even for a few days) before they go out again and are able to enjoy the cookies and phone cards to call home. Please pass on our thanks to all those in your organization for the support they have given not only to us but to all the troops.
God Bless
Jose
