The Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. has a long history of supporting our troops and their families. Formed in 1942, the non-profit organization has been instrumental in supporting the troops by conducting projects throughout the year such as creating and sending military troop care packages to demonstrate how much we appreciate the sacrifice of those who are serving our country and to provide small comforts from home for those who are often deployed in far away destinations.
OPERATION COMMUNITY CARES:909.772.5451 or www.OperationCommunityCares.org
The mission of Operation Community Cares is to support our troops across the globe through care packages and letters as well as providing support for those who are no longer serving. The organization sends care packages throughout the year and is asking for volunteers to “adopt a solider” or financial contributions to enable them to continue their mission.
