Blue Star Mothers of Maricopa – AZ CHAPTER 7
Tracy Davis and Lisa Durst worked diligently throughout 2012/2013 finding military moms in Maricopa to begin the chartering process to start a Blue Star Mothers Chapter here. On August 5, 2013, the national organization, Blue Star Mothers of America, approved the paperwork! On November 13, 2013, the first and only Pinal County chapter of Blue Star Mothers became a reality as the AZ7 Executive Board was installed. The group was officially designated as Blue Star Mothers, Chapter AZ7.
“Boxes for the Brave”
This is a great opportunity that most folks don’t know of. The City of Maricopa and the Blue Star Mothers of Maricopa teamed up and we have what’s called the “Boxes for the Brave” program. Anyone can contact Tracy Davis and get directions and help packing a box to send it to a service man or woman and my discretionary funds will pay the tab for the shipping and the city of Maricopa will ship it out for you. Just make sure you bring the package to city hall not sealed. This is a project/program that Tracy and I along with Lisa Durst championed and it’s in its third year!!! Sara Delgadillo is the one you need to see as she is the resident expert on shipping these packages that are delivered to city hall. Love this program and I am glad to have been a part of its birth!’
