Starting Monday June 15th the Sacramento Metro Fire District is assisting the Sacramento Blue Star Moms by having collection bins at strategically located stations throughout our Fire District.
The Blue Star Moms mission is to support our military and their families. Four times a year packages are mailed to hundreds of our military people.
This is where we need assistance, from our community, in collecting individual items to go into these packages that are mailed out. Here are a few of the items that are collected: jerky, baby wipes, shampoo, tooth brushes and tooth paste, chap stick, candy, power bars, batteries, playing cards, stationary, books, gum, socks etc.
