Hard as it is for many of us to believe, the holiday season is almost upon us. That very well could be part of the reason that Blue Star Mothers of Iowa are in need of your support.

Blue Star Mothers of Iowa, made up of moms of active duty and discharged service members, sends approximately 100 care packages to Iowa troops around the globe each holiday season. In just a couple of weeks, the group will begin assembling the boxes that will go to Iowa's finest serving our nation abroad. Unfortunately, this year they're short on supplies to put in them.

The list of items needed varies from snack food-type items to toiletries, leisure activity items, and more. If you'd prefer to send a monetary donation, those are used to purchase items on the list below.

Items or monetary donations can be sent to:

Blue Star Mothers of Iowa
PO Box 751
Johnston, IA 50131

The moms with the organization appreciate your support, almost as much as the men and women who will benefit from it.
