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.

American soldiers still in Iraq

Below is a portion of a recent message from a US soldier reminding us that we still have American troops in Iraq.

Hello and good morning Nancy. Unfortunately for us, America does believe that we are out of Iraq; our mission has changed, but we are still here. We are a small group here (Iraq), but we will be here for almost a year.

... I have a total of 16 Active Duty Navy personnel and there are a few hundred other employees such as contractors and a few Government employees.

As far as living conditions, we are confined to a very small compound. We do have running water, but not running/drinking water. We have to use bottled water to brush our teeth, etc. We do have a PX here that sells the basic needs items, but just receiving mail keeps us reminded of home and 'why' we are here. I'm not sure what your organization has, but things like mouthwash, soap, baby wipes, toothpaste are common items that we need, and of course if you would like to share coffee and M&Ms we would take that sort of stuff too :) Thank you for any and all consideration.

P.S. Happy Mother's Day
