Our crazy good packers need help!
Like Darvish without a baseball or Dirk without a basketball, if we don't have the funds for postage, we can't do what we do best ... mail care packages to U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, Mideast and other remote locations overseas.
The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are blessed to have access to hundreds of amazing volunteers from the Dallas - Fort Worth area that love to pack care packages, and do it very well. We also have some great product donors (always looking for more).
Our biggest need is financial donations. That's always our biggest challenge.
For the 1st quarter, we raised about $9,000 of our $140,000 goal for 2016.
So we have a long ways to go.
Many folks assume the military provides free shipping for our care packages. Wish it were so! We pay the U.S. Postal Service for each box we ship. And this is by far our biggest expense. We packed 400 boxes at our April 2 packing party ... which will cost us about $17,000 in postage costs. That's huge!
If you are looking for an opportunity to support our military troops overseas, we would certainly welcome tax deductible donations to the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, P.O. Box 116691, Carrollton, TX 75011, or online donations via the Click & Pledge donation link in the left column. Thanks!
