A New Local Chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc.
Cape Fear Blue Star Mothers of America Chapter will serve the Cape Fear region, including Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.
Blue Star Mothers of America members are mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, foster mothers and female legal guardians who have children serving in the military, guard or reserves or children who are veterans. These mothers support each other and their children while focusing on their mission to provide support for active-duty personnel and veterans and to never forsake our troops, our veterans or the families of our Fallen Heroes. Currently, there are more than 6,000 members from more than 200 chapters throughout the nation.
A new chapter, Cape Fear Blue Star Mothers of America, has just formed and is welcoming new members.
Kim Dionisio, president of the newly formed chapter, says, “We received our charter July 26,2021. Our membership is growing rapidly and we already have over 40 wonderful members that have jumped right in to help us get our programs off the ground. This new chapter opens up opportunities to offer more support to Military families throughout North Carolina. We are excited to accomplish a lot in the coming years.”
Blue Star Mothers of America was founded in 1942 in Flint, Michigan. The organization’s mission is to provide support for active-duty service personnel and Gold Star families, promote patriotism, assist Veterans organizations and to assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong. Blue Star Mothers of America is a 501(c)3 charity organization that is overseen by Congress.
