Support Our Troops: LaBelle VFW Adopts “Blue Star Family”

The LaBelle VFW Post and Auxiliary have adopted a group of seven men and three women as their “Blue Star Family”. These brave and dedicated, young F/A-18E Super Hornets are currently stationed aboard the Dwight D. Eisenhower Aircraft Carrier. The VFW Auxiliary hopes to provide this “Blue Star Family” with care packages, to help ensure they feel connected, supported and empowered to thrive – while they selflessly serve our country, far away from the comforts of home.

Their goal is to fill and ship a monthly box, filled with goodies donated by our community. They are asking for donations of toiletries such as: shampoo, conditioner, body soap, deodorant, wet wipes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, cotton swabs and feminine hygiene products. As well as non-perishable snacks like beef jerky, slim jims, protein bars, cookies, chips, crackers, etc. Also books, magazines and letters of support are strongly encouraged. These are just a few suggestions, other items are welcome as well.

If you are interested in donating some items to fill this months care package, simply bring them to the VFW Post #10100 located at 20 Veterans Way (next to the LaBelle Rodeo Grounds) in LaBelle. They have a donation box set up just inside the front doors.
