How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 250,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2014?

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.

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.
--- WE NEED HELP IN FINDING A NEW WAREHOUSE SPACE ! ---
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:
Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, TX 75011-6691. EIN: 86-1138447 Email: support@airborneangelcadets.com

ABC news story on our care packages

ABC News in the Dallas area (WFAA) came out and filmed a feature video on our January 2011 Valentine-themed packing party. Thank you ABC. We packed 280 boxes that were mailed (3.5 hours at the post office) to 5 platoons with a total postage cost of over $4,000. An additional 70 boxes were shipped the prior week. All care packages were shipped to American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Blankets for the troops

The photos below are of American soldiers in Afghanistan receiving some of the 20 homemade blankets that were lovingly made with the assistance of Girl Scout Christine Kainer and some very talented students with developmental disabilities at Heroes Camp.

"I received the boxes with the blankets today and as soon as I opened it one of the junior Soldiers asked me if they could have a blanket. I shared the story about the blankets and she hugged her blanket."

Thank you very much for all that you are doing and all that you have done. I never have had an opportunity until now to thank you for the box you sent a couple weeks back. That was so great and raised the moral greatly. I wish I could put into word the gratitude that myself and my fellows soldiers have for yourself and the great group of people you work with. I defenatly will get you a great pic and once again thank you for all that you do.
Thank you so much.
