QUILTS OF VALOR

About the Quilts of Valor Foundation

Her son’s deployment to Iraq was the inspiration for Catherine Roberts of Seaford, Delaware to see that all veterans and/or returning warriors touched by war were given the love and gratitude they deserved. Thus the Quilts of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with its mission: “To cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.” Quilts are awarded at many different levels; but no matter how or where a Quilt of Valor is given, it has been stitched with love, prayers and healing thoughts. Quilts of Valor are tangible tokens of appreciation that unequivocally say, “Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor.”

Our local organization is made up of quilters from all over Mobile and Baldwin counties. Six ladies from the Azalea City Quilters’ Guild helped us with the two quilts to be awarded. Anyone can help with this effort. Over 100 quilts have been awarded locally since last August and over 106,509 quilts have been awarded nationwide. For more information go to www.qovf.org or locally Bonnie Johnson can help you become involved in this effort.
