Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas is an all volunteer 501c3 organization that operates solely on donations of funds and goods that are directed towards our mission of supporting actively deployed U.S. military troops serving in harm's way through our care package program. Our concentration falls on those serving on the front lines and in hot spots around the world with care packages being sent year round. This helps to boost morale and lessen the financial burdens on the families of these brave men and women. Shipments of up to 500 boxes (over 5000 lbs) are sent every 6-8 weeks to contacts who are then responsible for distributing the boxes to those most in need or pushing the boxes out to the more remote locations where basic amenities may not be available. Something as simple as a toothbrush or a pack of peanut butter crackers to give them a sense of home, is vital to their morale.
Our biggest need is financial donations for postal costs to mail care packages to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines serving overseas. We reach between 12,000 - 15,000 troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, Mideast and other remote areas each year with these care packages. Our secondary needs are funds for warehouse rent and for purchasing of goods not donated for the care packages. We welcome donations of goods (mainly toiletries, foods and clothing) that are appropriate for military care packages so that we may direct funds towards additional care packages.
