Furman Collects Donations for Blue Star Mothers

Greenville, S.C. Furman will be collecting donation items to ship overseas to U.S. troops during the upcoming holiday season. The team is joining forces with the Blue Star Mothers and collecting items to make into care packages to send to the troops.

Team members will be collecting items in the Trone Student Center on November 12, 19, and 21 from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM.

Since their inception, and following in the footsteps of their grandmothers and mothers, Blue Star Mothers have mailed "a little bit of home" to our men and women serving around the world. Often commanding officers in the field will contact them and let them know that there is a solider not receiving any boxes or letters from home. They quickly become a part of the family and soon receive a care package with a blue star on the box, letting them know they are thought of.
