ADDRESSES NEEDED FOR SENDING HALLOWEEN HERO BOXES!!
We will be mailing Halloween Hero Boxes very soon and are looking for names and addresses of men and women in uniform who will be deployed outside the United States until at least mid-November (we need to be sure they will be there to receive the packages!!).

We will be collecting items to send in our Halloween Hero Boxes on Saturday, October 3rd, at the Walmart in Surfside Beach, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Please stop by and pick up an item or two in the store and drop them off as you leave so we can pack the boxes full of goodies to be enjoyed by our men and women in uniform who are serving outside the United States. If you can't make it that day, and would like to contribute, just contact us and we'll make necessary arrangements. Cash donations are also appreciated, as postage is VERY expensive...you can use PayPal by simply clicking on our Donations page.
WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA
For the past 4 years, we have been registered sponsors for Wreaths Across America. We are starting our 2015 campaign early with the hopes of raising enough money to sponsor a wreath for every single veteran buried at Florence National Cemetery this December. For every 2 wreaths sponsored through Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina, Wreaths Across America provides a 3rd one for free. Check out our Wreaths Across America page for more information about the program.

Our 4th annual Gold Star Mothers Day Service will be held on Sunday, September 27, 2015, at The Moose Lodge 1959 in Myrtle Beach, starting at 2:00 p.m. We hope you can join us to honor these mothers and their families.
Thanks to all who helped make our 2014 Gold Star Mothers Day a big success. We had 8 Gold Star Mothers in attendance, and many from our Grand Strand community who came out to show their support for the sacrifices made by these mothers, their famililes, and their children - who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
A special thanks to UNIVERSAL STORAGE SOLUTIONS in Surfside Beach, which has generously provided Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina with a complimentary storage unit for the coming year. This is a tremendous help to us, allowing Blue Star Mothers to collect LOTS OF GOODIES and store them until our next Hero Box packing event. THANK YOU to Managers Mindy and Bill Houston!!!
