NEEDED: sewing supplies for our troops in Syria to give to some of the neighboring communities — fabric, sewing needles, thread, yarn and knitting needles. Some other items that could also be useful to send would be buttons and zippers. This humanitarian effort will strengthen relations in Syria with our troops as well as be utilized to teach the Syrian women in those areas to sew and support their families.

Who We Are
We are mothers of active duty and honorably and medically discharged veterans serving in the military, guard, or reserve. Some of our children returned home with disabilities, while others made the ultimate sacrifice, teaching us and our families about the cost of freedom that we enjoy. Some of our children are currently deployed, doing the hard jobs of keeping us safe.
Who Can Join
You don’t have to be a mother to join our organization. We also recognize Blue Star Dads, as well as other family members, friends, neighbors, and co-workers, as Associate Members. It is the goal of Blue Star Mothers to help you find a way to show your support for the troops. If you want to support our troops, we welcome your participation in our missions.
Honoring Our Heroes
Showing Our Support
In over 19 years of service, we have mailed over 21,000 care packages to troops deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, Germany, and other countries around the globe. We are currently one of the busiest chapters in the country and one of the few with a physical troop support center. We are blessed every day with great community support and are so very grateful.

Mothers volunteered throughout the tough times of World War II. They worked in hospitals, train stations, packed care packages for soldiers and were a working part of homeland security during times of war. The organization waned in size over the years but has held together by mothers showing pride in both their children and country. In recent times we have began to grow in strength. Being attacked on our own soil has once again started mothers hanging flags in their windows at home proclaiming pride in the fact that we have children protecting our freedom during a time of war.
Our organization not only provides support for active duty service personnel, promotes patriotism, assists Veterans organizations, and are available to assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong.
We’re interested in hearing from you!
