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.

266 Active Duty Military, 209 Reserve Suicides in 2015

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas greatly appreciate the conscientious efforts, past and present, of the many chaplains, chaplain's assistants, MWR - Morale, Welfare and Recreation officers, and our regular military troop contacts who work diligently to make sure our care packages are distributed to those most in need.

A U.S. service member wrote a simple message to us back in 2013, "Any and all packages and correspondence is welcome!  Mail is one of our main morale boosters, no matter what it is!"  In a small way, we hope our care packages are making a small difference for many of the American Soldiers, Sailor, Airmen and Marines serving in remote locations overseas.

Army Times (4/4/2016), "Reserve suicides up 23 percent - active-duty count remains steady":

"The Defense Department's fourth-quarter suicide report for 2015 said 266 active-duty service members committed suicide in 2015, down from 273 in 2014."

"The number of Reserve component members who died by suicide — including those from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps reserves as well as Air and Army National Guard troops — rose to 209 from a four-year low of 170 in 2014."

We also recognize the difficulties facing many Veterans.  A Dallas nonprofit, Honor Courage Commitment, has a program #22KILL that emphasizes that an average of 22 Veterans are killed by suicide every day.  Below is a Fox 4 News video on #22KILL and its activities to assist Veterans.
