We started out sending care packages to American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan in January of 2005. Our small group of ladies in the Dallas area has grown to about 75 active members (all unpaid volunteers), and we continue to get requests from our soldiers in Afghanistan and the other overseas military posts.
We receive donated goods and financial donations from our supporters all across the USA. Every gift is greatly appreciated by us and by the soldiers overseas.
Our care packages are sent year round to soldiers from all 50 states in all branches of the military. We try to concentrate our efforts on troops on the front lines and in remote areas.
We always have more requests than we can supply.
Even the simplest items (lip balm, suntan lotion, batteries, coffee, deodorant, air fresheners, snacks, candy, etc.) really brighten the lives of the soldiers, and give them a little reminder of love and support from home.
But just as remarkable is to find so many American soldiers requesting items they can give to the local kids and families and community organizations (schools, etc.).
We shipped over 2,700 cartons of donated goods in 2012 and plan to ship even more in 2013. Funding for postage has always been our greatest need.
Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas (a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity) welcomes any inquiries of support for the troops.
