Our Supporters


Military families are in our communities and need our support!

We have many ways you can get involved with supporting our initiatives — sponsors, in-kind sponsors, co-chairs, committee members, public supporters, sharers of information, and volunteers.

Are you interested in championing future Blue Star Families initiatives?

We would love to welcome you.


Meet your Blue Star Welcome Week co-chairs. Thanks to the support from these leaders in our community, we can further the mission of Blue Star Welcome Week. We appreciate their dedication to helping military and Veteran families find a sense of belonging in their communities!
