September 28 – October 2, 2020

What is Welcome Week?

Each summer, hundreds of thousands of military families set out to move to a new duty station, forcing them to adapt to a new home, school, and community. But the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated those challenges, making the transition anything but easy.

That’s why we’re kicking off our inaugural Blue Star Welcome Week!

Whether you’re a military family wanting a greater sense of belonging or a civilian neighbor looking to welcome those who serve near you, we invite you to join us—no matter where you’re at.

Here’s what’s in store to create and grow meaningful connections long after the week is over:

  • Messages of Welcome & Appreciation from Blue Star Families across the country
  • Special events & giveaways in a chapter location near you
  • Spotlights on local favorites from military families & Blue Star Neighbors
