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.

4th of July Message

We wish to thank those who serve in the U.S. military this 4th of July! As a small reminder of why our troops should never be forgotten, and how care packages are still appreciated, below are excerpts from a service member in Afghanistan (published in DODLive).  Although the article was written last Christmas, the message applies to this 4th of July.

So, why am I sharing this?  It certainly isn’t a petition for more care packages.  Simply, it’s my gift to you. It’s a reminder that despite all of the tragedy we see throughout the world – from Afghanistan to the United States and many countries in between – good things are continuing to happen in spite of it all.

Lt. j.g. Cooks’ story is proof that there are good people in our global community who genuinely care for others.  And while a few care packages might not fix the world’s problems, the thought, care and concern for another human being, someone you don’t even know, is a staggering reminder of how we all should act year round.

My friends and I, despite being a small piece of a very big puzzle, are happy to be here in Farah serving you this Christmas season.  Sure we’d rather be home, having holiday fun with loved ones, but we’ve been asked to do a job and we’re here to do it with honor and pride.

As we pause to take a short break this holiday, we tip our caps to the people at home who help our families while we’re deployed and to our loved ones who remind us that we’re loved and we’re missed.  Thank you very much for your continued support in both big and small ways.  You are very much appreciated.
