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.

5-Store Kroger Collection Drive a Big Success

This past Saturday, the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas partnered with 5 area Kroger stores to host a "Support Our Troops" collection drive for goods to include in our care packages. Katie Nock, the Consumer Affairs Specialist for Kroger, was instrumental in coordinating the stores located at Carrollton (Old Denton Rd.), Frisco (Custer Rd), Little Elm (Little Elm Rd) , and two Denton locations (Teasley Lane and University Rd.) to assist us with selling pre-made grab bags and other items for our American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines serving overseas.

It was a huge success, filling about 200 large boxes of donations (about 7,000 items). Other generous patrons donated much needed funds that will be used for the shipment of these goods.

Along with our Angel volunteers, members from The Expendables Motorcycle Club, and the Plano and Prestonwood Young Men's Service League chapters came to help.  Our biggest "THANKS" goes out to the Hebron High NJROTC that sent cadets to all 5 stores to work side by side with our teams the entire day. Having these exemplary young men/women in uniforms truly added to the atmosphere and served as a gentle reminder of the need to remember our deployed troops still serving in harm's way.

Lastly, "thanks" goes out KLTY radio (94.9 FM) that came to the Carrollton location to air live for part of the day and for their promotional spots leading up to the event. Below are some of the photos from our event. Many more photos can be seen in our Featured Pages section.
