The Blue Star Moms are moms, joining together to share pride, devotion, and worries for sons and daughters currently serving in all branches of the Armed Forces in the United States. They first came together shortly after the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001. They collect needed items for Marines, Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen, sending out care packages periodically. They are an official chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America, a group who formed during World War II.
Last year, WHS, and WVMS participated in the donation drive to support Blue Star Moms. They are planning to have another drive after Spring Break, letters and food will be collected and sent to troops as personal care packages, and delivered on July 4th. Students are needed to participate in the drive, help with donations, and collect them. If interested in participating in this event, talk to Ray Salazar in counseling.
