What is the Mayor’s 100 Club, and how can you help?

1. The Mayor’s 100 Club supports Blue Star/Gold Star Mothers of Central – an organization supporting our troops overseas.  Blue Star Moms have a loved one serving overseas.  Gold Star Moms have lost a loved one in combat.

2. $100 check or $100 worth of supplies, or more, may be sent or delivered to Mayor Mac Watts at 13421 Hooper Rd., Suite 8, City of Central, LA 70818.  Please make checks payable to Blue Star Mothers of LA.  A list of needed supplies is below.  Please place supplies in sturdy boxes for handling.  All cash donations are to aid in shipping charges as well as buying additional supplies needed for our troops.

All donations are tax deductible.  Any and all donations appreciated.

3. Businesses, churches, schools, etc. may want to send a package in the name of your organization.  You may include a personal note in your package.

4. All donations need to be made by September 30, 2011.  We hope to publish a list of all contributors at a later date.

5. What do you get for joining the Mayor’s Club?  You get the heartfelt satisfaction of helping our young men and women overseas and to let them know they are in our prayers and that we appreciate their sacrifices for our country.
