Houston Hospice Cares For The TroopsWith the holidays quickly approaching, Houston Hospice will be donating over 3,000 notecards for inclusion in care packages to deployed troops among all branches of the military. The cards will be distributed through the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas and the Military Moms of Texas. Cards should reach their destination by late-November and will be traveling alongside gifts, personal care items and Christmas trees.
Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas was founded in 2005 by a small group of women and grew into a 75 member volunteer run organization. They create care packages year-round and concentrate their efforts on troops on the frontlines and in remote areas. They are aiming to ship over 4,000 cartons of donated goods this year. Military Moms of Texas was founded in 2009 and is committed to supporting our troops at home and abroad. They provide a variety of resources to military families including welcome home and send off for the troops.
Nancy Carter, President of Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas said, “The cards are a great way for them to keep in touch with family and friends and as you can imagine, there aren't exactly any Hallmark stores around the corner for them to purchase such items. I know they would appreciate the opportunity to send the note cards home.”
This past February, Houston Hospice joined the We Honor Veterans programs and is committed to serving those who served our country. Houston Hospice is delighted to be able to work with the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas and Military Moms of Texas by aiding in providing goods for their upcoming care packages. We are proud to support our troops and provide veterans with the respect and dignity they deserve.
