Donate the canton/blue field of Stars with Embroidered Stars
Since our project began in 2010, we have received over 47,500 usable flags. (updated March 2020)
What is a usable flag?
We appreciate only receiving flags that are 3 ft x 5 ft and American made flags with embroidered Stars. We love the different shades of blue of the canton and the Star does not need to look perfect.
The Embroidered Stars cannot be bigger than 2 inches to fit into our pouches.
We are all volunteers and it takes a lot of time to sort through donated flags. We respectfully dispose of unusable flags. We would rather use the time to create the Stars and share them.

can you pick out the ones we CAN’T use?
Flags from Military funerals should be given to your local National Cemetery, or to your local funeral home.
The cantons of embroidered Stars (please cut outside the blue area) are needed and it saves on postage, please mail them to:
Stars for our Troops Inc.
2 - 116th St. Box 301
Troy, NY 12182-0301
Attn: Susanw/Stars for our Troops Inc.

TIP: If you have an abundance of flags to send, we recommend that you email us first, then retire the flags, remove the cantons without cutting into the blue area. We will give you the address to send them. This will save on shipping, and you can give the stripes to your local Veteran organization for disposal.
