Or you can Venmo us at NancyCarter@AirborneAngels.

Care Packages Items Donated for Our Troops

We would like to thank a number of people who have donated items for our troops. Lupe Gonzalez, Sandy Mendoza, Tracey Messerly, Kellie Stafford and the 1st grade class at St. Patrick Catholic School contributed items that will be included in the care packages that we will be sending next month to our troops that are serving in Poland, Iraq, Africa and the Mideast. We really appreciate the support from individuals and organizations as we haven't been able to hold as many food drives as we have in the past.

Here is a picture of some of the items that were donated.

Care Package Packing Party for the US Troops - March 4, 2023

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, along with some wonderful volunteers from the Enterprise Transformation Group from Toyota and Classic Chevrolet packed over 370 care packages totaling more than $7,500 in shipping costs for our U.S. Military troops stationed in the Mideast, Africa and Eastern Europe at our packing party on March 4, 2023.

Before the packing began, Marine veteran Zack C. with GallantFew, spoke to the volunteers about receiving care packages while serving in Afghanistan and how important the packages are to the soldiers serving overseas - that we need to keep up the good job. He then stayed to help pack some of the boxes.

Thank you to all the volunteers, Zack C. and all the Angels who came out to pack with us on Saturday.  

Here are some pictures from the packing party:

Downing Middle School "Sweet Tooth Bakery" Project Supports the Troops!

Mrs. Bell and her amazing Downing Middle School (Flower Mound, TX) students held their annual Sweet Tooth Bakery on Tuesday, February 28, 2023. The proceeds from bakery will be used to buy items for the care packages we send to our U.S. military troops serving overseas. The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are proud to receive these donations and will make sure these goods reach our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines overseas.

The Downing Sweet Tooth Bakery has been an annual school project since 2013.  The "Skills for Living & Principles of Human Services" students organize, market, manage and operate a bakery business to sell a variety of cupcakes, brownies, cookies and t-shirts.  The profits are then used to buy specific care package items for American service members.

We appreciate these patriotic, hard working students!  The troops will be excited to receive the care package with the items the students have purchased!

The bakery items included cookies and cupcakes made

Care Package Thank You Notes

Here are a few notes we received from some of the units that received the Valentine care packages we sent earlier this month. As you can read, the packages are greatly appreciated. We will be holding another packing party on March 4, 2023 - this time the theme will be "Greetings From Texas". The boxes will contain Texas themed shirts, decorations, piƱatas, chips and salsa plus other Texas items.


Hi Nancy,

We did receive your boxes and the service members were thrilled! We can definitely accept boxes from your next shipment. We really appreciate your support!

Thank you,  

Amanda W.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good Morning Ma'am,

Thank you for the Valentine's Day boxes! We really enjoyed the decorations and used them to bring some cheer into the office. We are ready to receive the March boxes. The Soldiers have asked for beef jerky, pop tarts, trail mix, pistachios, candy and gum. The boxes provided last time were full of great items, so anything you send will be well received.

We greatly appreciate your support and all that you do!

Coreen M.

Commander

Good Morning,

Yea we did and they were amazing. Thank you so much for them. Sorry I was not able to get pictures of them this time. Some of my Soldiers got a little excited and opened them and put them away before I had a chance to get the pictures. I did have a few of my people write back so stay on the lookout for the envelopes with the letters in them. I will do my best to get pictures with the next ones. We will definitely be able to receive those. I also wanted to say a special thank you from my pharmacy tech. Those medicines (Eye drops, Tylenol, Cough Drops and those things) really made her day and she was so happy. So again thank you so much. Not trying to be picky but some of my people were asking if there was any way to get more protein bars like we did in the first set of packages. I told them I would ask. But we all love everything you have sent and are doing for us.

Everyone gets so happy when we see your packages arrive. We were even able to use the blankets and pillows for the patients we see. So please know that everything is going to great use and is greatly appreciated. Again thank you for your support and everything you do for us. If there is anything I can do for you on my end please let me know.

Also wanted to let you know the candy was a huge hit as well. I don’t think all that lasted more than 1 week. Everyone's face lit up when they saw how much there was. So again thank you so much.

Very Respectfully,

Michael L.
