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.

Hot Weather Donations for Deployed Troops Overseas

"Working on vehicles ... is a lot of fun for them in the 116 degree weather"  ... a recent tongue-in-cheek comment by one of our Marine Corps care package contacts in Iraq.

It is incredibly hot in the Middle East during the summer months. U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Africa also deal with many months of very hot temperatures.  So the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas often include care package items that will help our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deal with the heat.

If anyone has these type donations for our U.S. troops overseas, we would welcome your inquiry.  Some of the summer care package items we are collecting:

Powdered drink mixes to add nutrients/taste to water - ZipFizz, Mio, Gatorade, Crystal Light, etc.

Cool Ties / Head Coolers / Cool Tie Granules / Fabric for these items
Sunblock / Lotions
Freezer Pops in boxes
Air / Room / Car / Shoe Fresheners (not aerosol)
Thermos bottles / Hydration packs - CamelBak, etc.
Protein powder, vitamins, nutrients, energy - protein bars
Lip balm
Flip flops / Sandals (walking across gravel to the shower)
Foot powder, Insoles
Insect / Bug / Mosquito repellant (not aerosol)
Battery operated personal fans

If you are looking for a way to support American troops overseas, and have any of these type items that you could donate (or funding for the care package postage costs), we would welcome your support.
