Support Community

Military families are in our communities and need our support! Are you interested in championing future Blue Star Families initiatives? We would love to welcome you.

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.

No gift or effort is too small when it comes to helping connect our military and Veteran families to the communities where they live and serve. Together, each of us comes together with what we have to offer, creating a wave of positivity that reaches all of our borders and beyond.

We extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has shown support for Blue Star Welcome Week! You have made a difference.
