The Sacramento Blue Star Moms mail care packages to our
deployed troops in April and November, plus other times as needed.
We collect and accept donations through-out the year.
One of the most frequently asked questions is "What is a Care Package?"
A care package is a 'taste' of home sent with lots of love. All care packages contain a letter or a card, a note of love and appreciation, and the box filled with many of the items listed below. Since most of the care packages are sent to the warriors on the front line; they eat what they can carry.
