TEXAS PARATROOPER’S HOME RAVAGED BY STORM - PLEASE SUPPORT
Specialist Williams, a Paratrooper with the 1-143 Airborne Infantry Battalion/173rd IBCT(Airborne), returned home to Alto, Texas, on Saturday, 13 April from Live Fire Training at Fort Hood to find his home completely ruined. Thankfully his wife and daughter were able to find shelter with friends and family nearby during the storm. We are thankful that no one was injured. However, at this time, they do not have a place to call home and have been living apart from one another until they can gather what they need.
The Texas Airborne Alliance is dedicated to supporting the Williams family and the financial hardship they now face in rebuilding and recovering all that was lost in the storm.
Temporary housing, new kitchen appliances, and new furniture are needed to help get the Williams Family back on their feet.
Your donations to the Williams' family Go Fund Me page will get them the help they need.
The Texas Airborne Alliance is proud to be partnered with the 173rd Airborne Association in our endeavor to help the Williams Family put their life back together following this tragic loss.
Our hearts go out to SPC Williams, his wife and his two children.
IN ADDITION TO THE GOFUNDME DIRECT DONATIONS, ALL DONATIONS TO THE TAA FOR THE MONTH OF MAY WILL GO TO SUPPORT SPC WILLIAMS AND HIS FAMILY.
HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF RAISING $10,000!
The Texas Airborne Alliance is thrilled to have been part of the incredible effort to help raise money for Will’s new Whip. Thanks to all who supported and thanks to those that continue to support our amazing Texas Paratroopers. Airborne!

Our next fundraising event is here!
Help support our Paratroopers of the 1-143IN (A) during their Christmas Holiday Dinner by baking your very best Holiday Cookies.
Texas Airborne Alliance will accept participants for the Christmas Cookie Challenge. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in the email your name and contact information. The first 10 participants offering support VIA EMAIL will be accepted.
Christmas Cookie Challenge entrants are asked to bake approximately 200 cookies (from the same recipe) for the event. Cookies must arrive to Camp Swift no later than 2:00pm Saturday, December 8th, to allow for plating and preparation for service. Once we have our entrants, we will provide additional information on cookie drop off.
How does the challenge work?
All donated Christmas Holiday Cookies will be halved to build 'tasting plates' of cookies representing all entrants and allowing mass participation. Paratroopers will be asked to donate $5.00 minimum for a tasting plate and then they will cast votes for the top Cookie Chef of 2018!
The 2018 Texas Airborne Alliance Christmas Cookie Challenge Champion will be crowned following the 1-143IN (A) Holiday Dinner at Camp Swift, Bastrop TX. The dinner begins at 7:00pm and will run until approximately 9:00pm Saturday, December 8th.
Participants are not required to be present (we will contact you if you are the Champion!), however, you and your family are welcome to assist us with the Christmas Cookie Challenge. Please indicate that you would like to help out with this event in your email when you sign up for the challenge.
The winner of the 2018 Inaugural Alliance Christmas Cookie Challenge will be receive a $50 HEB Gift Card and a Texas Airborne Alliance Flex Fit hat from our newest production of SWAG! (Choice of Black or Grey)
