How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 150,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2024?

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 NancyCarter@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 before sending any care package goods.

Photos from troops in Afghanistan

Here are some great photos compiled over 2011-2012 by soldiers in Afghanistan who received our Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas care packages. Some of the Blistex, Colgate, Boy Scout popcorn, Girl Scout cookies, Emergen-C Energy Booster and Gold Bond Powder were generously donated by the manufacturer. Other products were donated by our volunteers and our many other great supporters.

The photos show how happy the troops are to receive the care packages, and may give you some ideas on what types of items are needed. Also, notice how many ladies are serving in our U.S. military. So products tailored for women (cosmetics, toiletries, etc.) are also good for care packages. (Click on images to enlarge)
