QOVF Celebrates 2018 Accomplishments!

QOVF volunteers wrapped 30,745 veterans and service members touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor in 2018 and over 209,110 since 2003.

As one recipient said, “Receiving it, I was not prepared for the emotions that coursed through me from wonder to tears. I am not sure what it means to have total strangers care for you in this way!”

Thank you for your dedication, your time, and your talent—QOVF appreciates all you do.
