  • Oh, I think it is like blue star mothers or something like that. Not sure if it is just around here or if the group has spread out. But I do know my mom worked with them a while back and they always needed things like baby wipes, toilet paper, tooth brushes, combs, sunscreen. USO was a great idea too.

    What an awesome daughter, you should be so proud of raising her to do things like this.
