Thank you to all who made our

Annual Packing for the Troops

a success!


It is through the generosity and efforts of everyone involved that Blue Star Mothers CT3 was able to send care packages to deployed troops for the holidays and give much needed items to our local veterans.

Thank you to our contributors:

Joan Cristiano and her staff at The Stanley J. Dudrick Department of Surgery at Saint Mary’s Hospital Trinity Health of New England.

LuAnn Basista and Lisa Angeles with Nabisco-Mondelez Inc.

Bryan De Young and Mr. Chris Brickman, CEO, Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc.

Gift cards and donations from the Girl Scouts of America Cookies for Heroes Program, Candy Creations, WalMart, Price Chopper and Shop Rite.

Everyone who purchased items through You Give Goods and Amazon Wish list.

A very special thanks for the wonderful handmade gifts we were able to add to our care packages:


The Granny Squares knitting and crocheting group who, along with our moms, made prayer squares.

The students of East Shore Catholic Academy who created amazing cards and artwork.

And thank you to all the Moms who came on Pack Nite and worked so hard filling all the boxes!
