“Remember the Troops” Donation Drive:
September 11 – November 11
“Remember the Troops” is the theme of the Central Valley Blue Star Moms’ annual package donation drive, which will run from September 11 through November 11. The goal of the drive is to create at least 350 “care packages” for local members of the U.S. military who will be on overseas deployments during the holiday season. Needed items include non-perishable snack foods, toiletries, small recreational items, and cash (to help defray mailing costs). Names and addresses of deployed service members are also being sought.
Serving far away from home – whether in Afghanistan, Iraq, South Korea, Germany, Africa, or any of our dozens of other overseas military bases – is difficult at any time of year, but most service members really long for a “hug from home” during the holidays. Something as simple as a package of soup, some powdered drink mix, sun screen or lip balm, baby wipes, fresh razors, or new deck of cards sent to one person can lift the morale of his or her entire unit. Donations of cash can help fill gaps on the wish lists or assist with shipping costs.
Cash donations should be mailed to:
Central Valley Blue Star Moms,
P.O. Box 1204 Clovis CA 93613-1204
Please send in this form Request Care Package to submit requests to have a package sent to a service member who will be on deployment between November and January.
