Recap of Christmas packing party for troops in Afghanistan

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas held our big Christmas care package packing party on November 20, 2013. We greatly appreciated the assistance of the volunteers that participated, including some fantastic volunteers from Citi and Kroger. We packed about 282 boxes, with a shipping cost of about $6,000. For our shipping costs, we always welcome financial donations.

The care packages will be going to U.S. troops in Afghanistan. We currently have about 50,000 U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan. The  main recipients of our care packages will be the Marines from 29 Palms (California) and Army soldiers from Fort Hood (Texas), Fort Drum (New York), and Fort Buchanan (Puerto Rico). Other units are being supported as well. Besides Christmas goods, we shipped a wide assortment of toiletries, snacks, clothing and many other items. Below are seven photos of our packing party.
