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.

Donation wish list for U.S. troops overseas

Donors always ask what items the U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines could use in their care packages. Based on correspondence with our troops in Afghanistan, here's a few suggestions from the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas. This is not meant to be a full list. If anyone has items they wish to donate for inclusion in our care packages, or can help with a financial donation for our shipping costs, please let us know. We will continue to ship care packages during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons and throughout 2014.
