The Blue Star Mothers of America is a Congressionally-chartered, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization formed for the purpose of supporting America’s military, veterans, and their families, and to foster patriotism. The Rochester, New York Blue Star Mothers Chapter 8 was founded on April 16, 2011.
We sent nearly 400 pounds of personal care items, snacks and valentine wishes to deployed troops in the Pacific, Afghanistan and a hospital in Kosovo in February. It was possible because of heartfelt donations from a grateful community.
