You are invited to help us create Quilts of Valor® for our deserving Service Members and Veterans in our East Central Illinois area. In 2015, we met and exceeded our original goals.

We have lofty goals for 2016 - to now create and award a minimum of twenty-five (25) Quilts of Valor for our area Service Members and Veterans To do this, we need your help.
