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 updates

It's been a busy November. Thanks to everyone who donated or volunteered their time to help get our Christmas care packages mailed to our soldiers overseas.

On November 14, we shipped 106 cartons to three of the smaller units we are supporting. This shipment contained 750 large Christmas stockings, some of our 8,500 mini stockings, black knit beanie caps and assorted other items. Postage was slightly over $2,000.

On November 16, we held our larger packing party, and packed 215 boxes of snacks, toiletries, socks and many other donated items. The boxes were mailed on November 17 at a cost of about $3,500. The care packages were sent to five different units overseas.

On November 17, Covidien, an international healthcare products company, held a national conference in Dallas and packed about 100 cartons of donated items (and donated the funds for postage) for Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas to send to soldiers overseas. Thank you Covidien for your generosity.

We will continue to send smaller shipments in December, and are preparing for our next big packing party in January, 2012.
