Care Package Packing Parties Were Huge Successes!

Fantastic Day!!!!  We packed and mailed over 500 care packages in June!  Thank you to everyone that came out and assisted.  We have already received several thank yous from service members around the world!  We couldn't do what we do without your amazing volunteerism!

      Three to four times a year the Rolling Hills Blue Star Moms get together and hold a Care Package Packing Party!  We will pack US Postal Large Flat Rate boxes full of non-perishable food items, personal hygiene goods, printed material, and much more.  We seal each box with tender loving care and send it to a service member overseas.

      To mail the 500 care packages that we send annually costs our organization more than $7,000 and does not include the items that we put in the packages.

      To make our Packing Parties a success we rely on your donations - monetary and goods. You may drop off any donations of goods at the Folsom Veterans Hall located at 1300 Forrest Way in Folsom, Monday-Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Look for the Donation Box in the lobby, and while you are there you can stop in the Canteen to quench your thirst!     You can easily contribute a monetary donation by clicking the DONATE button above.

Do you know a deployed service member's name and address?

                   We'd love to send them a care package!  

Welcome to our "Sponsor a Box" program", a $50 donation will fill a box full of items and cover the postage.  We are a non-profit tax-exempt charity organization with 501(3)(c) status and will be happy to provide you and or your organization with a tax deductible receipt.
