Quilts of Valor

The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover ALL combat service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. This foundation is not about politics. It’s about people.

Thousands of our men and women have died as a result of the war in foreign countries and almost 25 percent of the veterans returning home suffer from some type of physical or psychological wound. We have plenty of work to do to show our gratitude. Now is the time to get involved and give back to our warriors/veterans.

Wichitan Lisa Conner will present the story of Quilts of Valor. She will have a slide presentation of quilts given to honor Veterans. You will learn about the program and how our own efforts help to honor our local heroes. She will also have a trunk show of quilts that will be going to Veterans at their own presentation time. Maybe you have heard of this organization before but never knew how it deeply affects our own friends and neighbors. During this season of love and giving, this is a perfect opportunity to learn how we can honor Servicemen and women for their sacrifices.
