Blue Star Moms pack Christmas boxes

With many different items used to fill care boxes for the troops, the normal process is to lay out a long line of items in the Chester Memorial Hall kitchen and move from one end to the other making sure each box receives a full array of goodies. If you would like to help support our nation’s troops, a full list of donation items and drop-off locations can be found at Feather River Blue Star Moms website. Photo by Gina Pixler
