Our Impact on the Military Community
This June, at our National Convention in Memphis TN, more than 100 AGSM Members, Associates, and Guests gathered to pack more than 200 Cheeriodicals to be delivered to the Memphis VA Medical Center. This project exemplifies who we are and what we do. We support each other as we serve our Veteran and Military Communities.
- Over 140 Chapters of American Gold Star Mothers, Inc. across the United States support veterans, active duty service members, and their families by hosting events to honor these men and women while educating the community about service and patriotism. Initiatives include:
Visiting VA Homes and Hospitals as we carry on the spirit of our founder, Grace Darling Siebold.
Packaging and shipping care packages to deployed service members.
Purchasing school supplies and clothes for veteran, active duty, and Gold Star children.
Participating in community events that celebrate military service.
Participating in national and local Memorial Day and Veterans Day events.
Making holiday meals for Veterans Homes and Military Bases.
Providing assistance with home repairs, vehicle repairs, and moving expenses.
And so much more...
