Support Our Military Families
Stars for Cars was started by Jake Gallin, when he was eight years old, from New Rochelle, NY. Jake was inspired after watching a television show about the sacrifices that our country’s military families make every day. On the show were First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, and a Gold Star Mother. Our First Lady reminded us that 1% of our nation is protecting 99% of our nation. Jake took this to heart and began reaching out to friends, neighbors, teachers, and community leaders. He wanted them all to recognize the “Blue and Gold Star” families living in our community. He is doing this for all of the people he refers to as, “Our One Percenters.” He is doing this for the great deal of families who have lost their loved ones. A “Blue Star” signifies that there is a family member who is serving in the Armed Forces. A “Gold Star” signifies that a loved one has died while serving our country. Stars for Cars has been recognized by the USO as an official partner in helping our brave military families.
We are hosting a Baseball Clinic with MLBPAA and the USO for Military Kids on August 13th at the Brooklyn Cyclones Stadium
Thank you for your support.
All Good Things,
The Gallin Family
