Blue Star Mothers are seeking military contacts and donations.

Those who know of people serving in the military and stationed outside the U.S., and who would like to have them added to the BSM mailing list, should bring information to the BSM office, 816 S. College Ave. The name and phone number for a contact person and estimated date of return to the U.S. is needed.

Blue Star Mothers, Cherokee Capital OK-21, mail 15-20 boxes a month to give military members a "touch of home." Mailing costs run a little over $300 monthly, and members may spend $200 on supplies, depending on donations. Many people and local groups donate money and supplies on a regular basis. Each box contains personal care items, magazines, snack items, paperback books, puzzle books, stationary, pens, and more.

For a complete list of items, email

wDonations may be dropped off at the office. For more information, visit or call Melody Parker at 918-457-7666.
