Blue Star Canteen – Canandaigua

The proud Blue Star Moms of NY’s Chapter 1 have pulled off a tremendous victory against all odds!

They saw a need for a soldier’s canteen where troops can rest and relax in a home like setting on the grounds of the Canandaigua VA Hospital.

They identified a victorian structure on grounds which was vacant and in need of repair.

They persevered in pushing their request to obtain a lease on the building all the way up the VA chain of command and, finally, in early April, the papers were signed and the dream became a possibility.

Here is a news report with video.

Here is a slideshow of the condition of the building now.

Much work needs to be done to restore the structure and donations of gift cards in any denomination for stores such as; Lowes, Home Depot and Walmart would be greatly appreciated.  Gift cards and check donations can be mailed to:
