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.

Care Packages - Beyond Foods and Toiletries

Do we include anything other than foods and toiletries in our care packages to U.S. Military Troops overseas?  We do!  Actually, our non-food, non-toiletry items are sometimes the most valuable and appreciated items by the Troops.

Plain colored socks, towels, pillow cases, twin sheet sets, batteries, shoe insoles, DVD's, puzzle books, footballs, soccer balls, room decorations, air fresheners, pain relievers, underwear, wool caps, flip flops, playing cards, single use laundry detergent ... are some of the wide variety of items we send in our care packages.

Some of the more work-related items that are appreciated by the troops include mechanic's gloves, flashlights, multi-tools, drills, screwdrivers, and hand/foot warmers.  Do they really appreciate these items?  See four recent responses from troops in the Mideast.

"I deployed with 20 other soldiers. Anything you send would be more than enough. It is hard to maintain, but we are making the most of it."

"The tools are always a necessity. We constantly set up tents without any way of dividing them and are always borrowing tools."

"We received the packages and thanks a ton to your organization.  The tool sets would be much appreciated at some of our more austere locations."

"We are very very grateful for all that you and your team do for us ... The multi-tools would be more useful than anything else."

We are always looking for additional products and financial donations for our care packages!  If you have products or funds you could donate, we would welcome your support!  Our email is support@airborneangelcadets.com.   Thanks!
