There is a group of women, (well mostly women) who donate their time and skill to make quilts for veterans. Their mission is to cover our wounded soldiers. Their name? Quilts of Valor Foundation www.qovf.org.
There are groups in various parts of the country. They collect names of servicemen to give a quilt to. They send quilts all over the world. Some soldiers even do special requests.
There are local chapters of various quilting clubs that donate quilts to this cause as well. One of them is in the Hemet area of Southern California, http://www.valleyquilters.org.
If you wish to donate your time, quilt, money, fabric, whatever, just visit the websites above.
We salute these women who are true patriots! We know their quilts are made not with just thread and fabric, but love and affection for our servicemen.
