CARE PACKAGES FOR OUR SOLDIERS
Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana #2 is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.  Our chapter sends care packages twice a year to troops who are deployed.  What is a Care Package?   A care package is a taste of home sent with lots of love.  All care packages contain a letter or a card, of love and appreciation, and the box is filled with many of the items listed below.  We send two separate care packages.  One package is filled with food items and the other package is filled with toiletry items. To donate items for our care packages, contact Monah Delatte at 985-633-9354.
