Blue Star Mothers of Northern Virginia

A super big THANK YOU to the Martins Chase HOA in Ashburn, VA. This wonderful community has chosen our organization to be the beneficiary of their efforts to promote helping the military. Good luck with the race and thank you for supporting our guys and gals in uniform. *********** We want to thank Wegman's Grocery Store of Fairfax. They have generously donated a gift card for the Blue Star Mothers of Northern Virginia to use to send goodies to the troops. We ask all viewers to consider a trip to Wegman's, a supporter of the men and women in uniform. THANK YOU WEGMAN'S.
