TULSA, Oklahoma -- Blue Star Mothers would like to send American military people serving overseas some special Christmas presents, but they need names and addresses.

They are building Freedom Boxes with items a service man or woman would like to get, but -due to privacy laws – must rely on family members to provide them with the personal information of service personnel.

If you have a friend or loved one serving on foreign soil, send their name and address to the Oklahoma Chapter 1 of Blue Star Mothers. The Tulsa-based organization will see that those sacrificing for their country won't be overlooked during the holidays.

Send information to:

Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc.
Oklahoma Chapter 1
P.O. Box 2306
Tulsa, OK 74101

Find out more at Oklahoma Blue Star Mothers.

Donations of items or money can also be sent to that address, or you can donate at all Fox Cleaners Location, USA Sign at 92nd and Sheridan, or the Walgreens Stores at 117th and Memorial, 21st and Memorial and 31st and Harvard in Tulsa.
