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 2018?

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.

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.

Joseph “Joe” Fernandes, U.S. Army World War II Veteran

It’s with great sadness that we share the news of the passing U.S. Army World War II Veteran, Joe Fernandes, our "Sweet Joe". Joe really loved coming to our packing events and was even asking when the next packing party would be right before he passed away. 

Here are some pictures of Joe from a previous packing party:

Joe and son Mike taping boxes.

We presented a flag and certificate to the Fernandes family in honor of our "Sweet Joe" at the August 4th packing party. Also, the chair that Joe used while help taping the care packages was memorialized in his honor.

A flag and certificate were presented to Joe's family.

Here's a link to a a video that was taped at our August 4, 2018 packing party where we honored Joe and his family: Volunteers-Honor-World-War-II-Veteran-With-Day-of-Action

Joe made our packing parties very special and will be greatly missed.

The family asks that donations be made to the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas in his name.

Pillows For the Troops!

A number of the Angel's gathered this week to stuff pillows for the troops.We want to thank Lorraine from New Mexico who sewed all the pillows. The stuffed pillows will be sent to the soldiers so they have something soft to lay their head on and dream of home while they are serving on the front lines.

Here are some pictures from the pillow stuffing party:

Care Package Packing Party for the US Troops - August 4, 2018

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas and some great volunteers from Delta Airlines, Citi and Toyota Veterans group packed over 400 care packages totaling $8000 in shipping costs for the U.S. Military troops stationed overseas at our packing party on Saturday August 4. These care packages will be shipped to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa and the Mideast. The care packages were packed with toiletries, snacks, microwavable meals and notes from supporters. The theme for this packing party was Hawaiian luau, so the boxes also contained grass skirts, coconut bras, decorations and other fun items. 

Here are some pictures from the morning session:

Citi Donates Items for Our Female Troops Serving Overseas.

A big thank you to Cindy H, our of our angels, and the folks from Citi. For the past month they have been collecting goods for our women serving overseas. They held a collection last year but this year they tripled their donation! Beside collecting and donating the items, the Citi volunteers went to our warehouse to sort, tape, decorate boxes, write thank you notes and even assembled flip flops. 

Here are some pictures from their time at the warehouse:
