Each presentation package was accompanied by a heartfelt letter of gratitude from the CT Quilters. Each letter not only thanked each service member for their service, they also explained the Quilts of Valor program and described the part the CT Quilters played in making the quilts they were receiving. The volunteers will award the quilts to various service members currently receiving care in the Poly-Trauma Unit.
The CT Quilters have more quilts in process and look forward to making more donations of quilts as we aspire to cover and comfort as many of our service men and women as possible. If you would like to join this group, please click on the “How to Help” button at the top of this webpage.
