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 and donated warehouse space, 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.

July 2013 email from Marines in Afghanistan

We received 40 (care package) boxes from ACT over the last 10 days or so.  They are awesome!  Thank you so much for the magazines, newspapers, deodorant, lotion, body wash, soup, protein, nuts, ravioli, peaches, calendars, pencils, laundry sheets, girl scout cookies, chips, neck pillows, headbands, baseball shirts, and all the 4th of July gear.  The Marines made good use of the headbands in a basketball tournament we are holding, and decorated the different divisions with the 4th of July gear.  Also thank you for the tuna and all the microwaveable meals, noodles, coffee supplies, and boxes of flip flops.

... With this last shipment, I was able to bring 20 of the large boxes to a Ch-53E squadron.  The CH-53 is the “Super Stallion”, the huge Marine Corps heavy-lift helicopter- definitely enough room for all the boxes!  The squadron I brought them to ... promised that they would take the boxes to the outlying FOBS and PBs on their supply runs.  They said they are glad to do it.  So more remote places like ... will get some of the ACT (Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas) packed goodies soon!

Thank you again for all of the support.  You guys are run like a well-oiled machine and I know that your time and money invested is valuable.  It means a lot to us to feel so cared for.
