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.

June care packages headed to U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, along with some great volunteers from the Dallas Area Young Lawyers Association, State Farm, Citi and other Dallas area volunteers packed about 360 care package boxes on June 7, 2014.  The care packages will be going to our U.S. troops in Afghanistan, and will reach Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. Many of the donations came from our recent Kroger collections. Thanks Kroger, and all those who have donated to support our military.

Everyone worked hard at the packing party, but were grateful for the chance to show some appreciation for our troops serving overseas.  Items shipped included toiletries, microwavable foods, socks, hygiene items, snacks, drink mixes and all kinds of other assorted items.  The total  postage cost of the shipment was slightly over $8,000, so we always appreciate anyone who can help us with financial donations.

Below are some photos of the hard working volunteers at our packing party. Click on images to enlarge.
