CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY, N.Y. — Chapter 4 of the Blue Star Mothers is collecting items for troops for its annual Easter Care Package Project.

The group sent out 435 care packages this past Christmas. Items in the packages include letters from kids, toiletries and magazines.

"It means so much to them, and last year at Christmas, my son was in Afghanistan and he said, you just have no idea what it means to get a little bit of home and to know that you're being thought of, you know, especially around holiday time," said Kathleen Collver, Blue Star Mother.

They will assemble the Easter care packages at 9 a.m. on March 2nd at the Zion Lutheran Church in Frewsburg.
