How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 250,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2020?

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. Or you can Venmo us at Nancy@AirborneAngels.

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 Package Thank You Letter and Photos

 We have received several emails and pictures from troops that we want to share:

Nancy,

We greatly appreciate all you and your team do!  You have been a huge blessing to our Soldiers in making their time away from home better.  We had all the Halloween decorations out and look forward to Christmas decorations you are sending.

Thanks again!

Hi there!

I have received your packages. I have been meaning to reach out. Things have just been a little hectic. I wanted to let you know how grateful I am that you are helping support us here down range. I honestly cannot express how much it means to know that folks back in states have us in mind while we are here. If you send more packages we are always grateful for anything you send, but just for your awareness we have tons of hygiene products but snacks usually don’t last long. Especially because the cafeteria sucks LOL J Usually things like beef jerky, chewy candies, chocolate, cookies, snack cakes or chips are ideal.

I can’t express how much appreciation I have for you and your folks that help make it happen. I know that it takes a lot of kindness to do what you do for us and I cannot say thank you enough!

Have a great day!

Very Respectfully,

Nancy,

Our rotation date is up in the air still but we expect it to be early December.  My replacement is CPT Colvin, CCed, with Detachment 3.  I expect his group to be enthused to receive your generosity.

I attached some photos of the soldiers opening some boxes.  They were ecstatic for the Halloween decorations and put them all over our office.  Two of our soldiers dressed up like my NCOIC and I for Halloween.  We also have two promotions.  It's been a good but busy month.

We will have to keep in touch.  I will try and schedule a trip out to Texas during one of your volunteer days to meet people and help pack boxes.  I will send more pictures with the next set of boxes.  Thanks again.

Respectfully,

Steve G

Christmas Care Package Packing Party For the US Troops!

Some of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas gathered together and packed 95 care packages for our U.S. Military troops stationed overseas on Saturday, November 7, 2020. These care packages will be shipped to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa and the Mideast. The care packages had a Christmas theme and contained mini Christmas stockings, 2021 calendars, black knit hats & gloves, Santa Hats, hand warmers, Christmas DVDs, playing cards, and homemade greeting cards. Due to COVID19 and the 6ft. rule, we held 2 sessions rather than one big party to ensure compliance.

Hopefully, these items will bring a smile to the faces of the recipients.

Toyota Veterans Association Held a Donation Drive-thru for the Troops!

On November 7, 2020, the Toyota Veterans Association hosted a collection drive at their HQ for many charities.  Airborne Angel Cadets was fortunate to be one of them. Toyota asked their employees to either bring goods or donate financially to one or more of the selected charities. The items donated to us filled up the beds of two trucks, plus the back seats and even spilled over to the front seat. The goods they donated are greatly appreciated since we can't hold our regular collection drives due to COVID 19.                                                                                          

Here are some pictures from the event:

Thank you Toyota Veterans Association for your continued support.

Richardson, TX Neighborhood Donates Candy to the Troops

We want to thank the residents of Canyon Creek in Richardson, TX for their donation of candy. We use candy instead of packing peanuts when we pack our care packages, so this donation is greatly appreciated. Our goal is to fill every space in the boxes with something the troops can enjoy or use.


Candy donated by residents in Richardson, TX.
