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.

Christmas Care Packages Going Out to Troops

This week the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas shipped out over 100 large cartons of Christmas care package goods to our troops overseas (primarily in Afghanistan). More Christmas care packages will be mailed in the next few weeks, including a large number of cartons to be packed at our upcoming packing party on November 20.

As we approach Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, cash donations for our postage costs remains our greatest need in supporting American active duty troops serving overseas, and we welcome tax-deductible financial donations to our all-volunteer nonprofit. Our great supporters have donated about $62,000 during 2013, and we are still hoping to reach our goal of $100,000 for the year. We are a non-political charity and support U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines from all 50 States.
