Charity Highlight: Blue Star Families

Blue Star FamiliesThis month’s charity feature highlights Blue Star Families.  Blue Star Families seeks to support our military families and service members.  Despite having only been founded in 2009, there is great momentum and rapid expansion of this organization.  Organized by local chapters, the group heads up many programs to connect families and empower its members.

Blue Star Theaters and Blue Star Museums have partnered with national companies and foundations to provide low cost and no cost entry to theaters and museums around the country.  This allows our military families to access entertainment without breaking the bank.   Blue Star Theaters also extends casting calls on base as well as theater oriented workshops and classes and often shares job postings.  Outside of theater related jobs, Blue  Star Careers is a hub for employment opportunities.

To connect directly with our Blue Star families, Operation Appreciation strives to lower the number of military families who feel the general public do not appreciate or understand the sacrifices made by the service member and their family.  Operation Appreciation can provide an information packet and facilitate getting letters to our families.  Other great ways to show some appreciation to our military kids is through the MilKidz Club and Books on Bases.
