Southwest Florida FL4 is a Chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc.,  which was  chartered in February 2009.

Our Chapter has performed above and beyond to accomplish projects that have touched many lives in our military community both at home and deployed! Our membership continues to grow and we welcome you to join us in connecting with military families in southwest Florida and across the USA.  Come meet other Moms who have loved ones serving in our military, as well as Moms of Veterans who have served courageously and honorably and join us in our efforts to make a difference for our troops and Veterans.


Southwest Florida Blue Star Mothers FL4 is assisting with the Women’s Veterans Retreat being held September 10-13, 2015.

Georgie Alfano-Cronk, Chair, Women’s Veteran Committee is holding the 2nd Annual Female Veterans Retreat for our wounded female warriors in Parrish, Florida this year.

The Women’s Veterans Retreat is being sponsored by Goodwill Manasota, Southwest Florida Blue Star Mothers FL4, and Sarasota County Veterans Commission (Women’s Veterans Committee).

This year’s retreat we have 25 veterans that we will able to bless with a homemade quilt or afghan.

Our Blue Star Mother's have been collecting quilts and afghans during the summer. Our chapter received beautiful quilts that were donated by Siesta Key Chapel and Bahia Vista Mennonite Church, beautiful quilts from Barbara at Sew Easy, and gorgeous afghans donated by BJ & the St. David Knitters.

We can't thank you enough for your caring hearts, your time and talent to help us come together and make these wounded warriors feel loved.
