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.

Women Warriors Not Forgotten in Care Packages!

Many of the care package donations from the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are distributed to women serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps in Afghanistan, Iraq, the Mideast, Africa and other remote areas.  A recent Department of Defense (DOD) report gives some interesting stats on our Military:

Total DOD Active Duty Female Officers & Enlisted:
* As of January, 2016 (excludes Cadets/Midshipmen).
68,746 - Army
59,706 - Navy
14,323 - Marine Corps
58,944 - Air Force
___________________
201,719 - Total Females (15.58% of DOD's Active Duty Personnel)

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas do pack certain items specifically for women (smaller size socks/shirts/sandals/insoles, feminine products, toiletries, etc.).  We welcome your support for all our brave men and women serving in our Armed Forces overseas.

From Military.com (May 15, 2015) ...
"up until 1967, women could only be 2 percent of the armed forces; it was the law”
"The Navy is proceeding with its plan to increase the number of women in the service to 25 percent with a similar goal of attaining that ratio in each ship and squadron, the vice chief of naval operations (Adm. Michelle Howard) said Thursday."
