Honoring a commitment to support the troops, Blue Star Mothers of Southern Nevada, Chapter #1, sent out a record 700 or more boxes to troops deployed overseas last year, with their last packing party being held in December. This year, their mission remains the same.
The chapter will be kicking things off with a post holiday social-membership party on February 26, 2012, and following up with a fundraiser planned for March, and a packing party planned for spring. Monthly meetings are held every second Thursday of the month at Glazier's Food Market Place on Warm Springs Road in Southwestern Las Vegas.
The Blue Star Mothers of Southern Nevada, Chapter #1 are comprised primarily of mothers who now have, or who have had, children serving in any branch of the United States Military. Associate memberships are also open to fathers, siblings, and friends of the military.
