TruckeeMeadows NV3 Blue Star Mothers would like to say “THANK YOU” to all of the volunteer groups that have helped us send our care packages to the deployed troops, USOs, military hospitals, and our own Nevada National Guard when they are deployed. We cannot do this without the support of the American Legion Post 1, American Legion Post 30, DAV, The Patriot Guard Riders, local Girl Scouts, local Boy Scouts, and our local Community.
A care package can cost approximately $70 in contents and shipping…so you see, we rely heavily on your generous donations and volunteer help to continue sending these care packages and notes from home. Just like cash donations, all goods donated are fully tax deductible because of our 501(c)3 non-profit status. If you’re thinking of donating food items, we can only accept unopened boxes/packages.
Operation Postcard: We need cards from the community and school kids. Please contact us if you would like to send cards to our active Military.
Donations of goods are gladly accepted from individuals, families, businesses, organizations, and the community at large.
If you know of someone that is deployed out of the country and would like to receive a care package from the Blue Star Mothers, please message us with their name, military address, and deployment dates.
Here are a few of our packing party memories. We typically ship care packages at least 4 times each year.
