The Nutmeg State Blue Star Mothers partner with many groups and organizations in the support of our troops, Veterans, and military families. And we need your help.

Heart and hands icon

Your Generosity

We volunteer and participate in events, we give necessary physical items and care packages needed for our troops and Veterans, and we contribute monetary donations that are asked of us. To maintain the level of volunteerism that makes this organization so great we are much much dependent on the generosity and contributions of others.

Our Promise

Any items or financial contributions that are donated to the Nutmeg State Blue Star Mothers goes directly to the work that we do and to those that we support. No Blue Star Mother ever receives financial or material payment for the work she does for the organization. Our job is the care and support of our troops, military families, and honored Veterans.

Making a Difference. Together.

Each year, your contributions to Chapters across the country help support our Soldiers and their families, our Veterans, and our Gold Star Mothers.*
