About Us

On January 22,1942, the Flint News Advertiser printed a coupon asking Mothers of service men to return the coupon after filling it out. The following February 1st, three hundred mothers met in the Duran Hotel in Flint, Michigan. Captain George H. Maines, who had conceived the idea for this group acted as the chair of this first meeting. It was decided after receiving 1000 responses from the ad to form a permanent organization. On February 6th the organization was reported on the Congressionarecord. Chapters then formed in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, New York, Pennsylvania, Oregon, California, Iowa, and Washington.  In June, 1960 the organization was chartered by the U.S. Congress.   

 

Mothers volunteered throughout the tough times of World War II. They worked in hospitals, train stations, packed caree packages for the soldiers and were a working part of homeland security during times of war. The organization waned in size over the years but has held together by mothers showing pride in both their children and country. 

In recent times we began to grow in strength. Being attacked on our own soil has once again stared mothers hanging flags in their windows at home proclaiming pride in the face that we have children protecting our freedom during wartime.

 

Broken Arrow Chapter 5 was founded in March, 2003.   Each month between one to three hundred care packages are shipped to men and women deployed throughout the world. These boxes contain a variety of items. A list of the items needed for the boxes is listed on the “Needs List” tab.  The contents of the box are accompanied by letters of encouragement from the community.  We would be unable to complete our mission if it were not for our community!  Your efforts are an amazing source of encouragement to our men and women in uniform!

 

If I know someone who is currently deployed can the Blue Star Mothers send a Care Package to them?

Just share their APO/FPO address and an approximate return date and we will add them to our mailing list.
