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.

Fantastic Packing Party Today for our Military Troops Overseas

About 660 care package boxes were packed today for our U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines deployed overseas.  Most of the care packages are going to American Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas had a large group of our own hard working volunteers preparing for weeks in advance for the packing party.  So we were glad to have the help of some amazing guest volunteers from Highland Park High School's HP4Troops Club, the National Charity League - Preston Bluebonnet Chapter, and The Hockaday School.

And a special thanks to Matt, a recent recipient of our care packages while stationed in Afghanistan, who has now returned to Fort Hood and helped us enormously today.

We would like to thank all the individuals, businesses and organizations who have donated funds and products to help all-volunteer nonprofit mail out these care packages.  A special thanks to the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plain for the thousands of cookies, and to PepsiCo for a big donation of snacks and Gatorade powder.  And as always, we thank the troops who serve and protect us overseas!

Below is a video of our packing party, plus some photos.  The donations on the tables are constantly being restocked, and we had both a morning and afternoon session. so no single photo can convey the amount of goods packed.  But the goods should be shared by a few thousand troops.

Additional packing party photos can be seen on our Weebly Archives website.
