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:
Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, TX 75011-6691. EIN: 86-1138447 Email: email@example.com
Soldiers respond to Christmas care packages
a much more formal way, but I wanted you to see what my Task Force Commander was shown this past week.
He has seen us out and about, sharing the packages that you have sent. Truth is, there is no way to give you the true story of how these supplies have benefited the Soldiers out here. I hear a lot of "Wow! You have these?" and "This is the kind I like to use!" and "Who sent all this out here?" So I tell the story of Airborne Angel Cadets and your sacrificial giving to the cause of Soldiers.
Thank you again and again.
V/r, James, Camp Marmal, Afghanistan
