A Soldier's Wish List

Claremore’s chapter of the Blue Star Mothers is always working hard to keep our soldiers overseas as content as they can be during their time away. Please see the list below of items that you can donate to help make a soldier’s day! Donations are always welcome. Please keep in mind that the holiday season is nearly upon us, and too many men and women will be spending it away from family this year.

The Rogers County Blue Star Mothers can be reached by phone at 918-343-2675 or via email at rogerscountybluestarmothers@hotmail.com. Mailing address is P.O. Box 14, Claremore, Oklahoma 74018. They are also on facebook here.
