Sacramento Blue Star Moms
The Sacramento Blue Star Moms is a non-profit Veterans service organization.
We are in the South Placer County and Sacramento areas. We support all troops regardless of their hometown. We support the military; past and present. We honor the Gold Star Families and cherish their children "Fallen Warriors". We have no paid positions. We share our compassion and pride with you. We worry, cry, laugh and together we bring a "taste" of home to our troops who are in harms way.
We are proud Moms, Grandmothers, Spouses, Sisters, Aunts, Girlfriends, Daughters, Uncles, Dads, Sons, Family and Friends!
We send care packages to deployed primarily stationed in Afghanistan. We currently are not sending packages to troops stationed in locations where they have access to stores and/or centers. The care packages are filled with snacks, candy, socks, books, beef jerky, personal hygiene items, and each box includes a message written by those here at home. We raise the money for care package items and postage through donations and fund raising opportunities.
