The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a national nonprofit established in 2003 by Catherine Roberts, the mother of a young soldier deployed to Iraq. The group gives hand-made quilts to US service people who have been deployed across the globe. The stated mission is “to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.”
From Memorial Day through the end of the month, 25+ locally-made Quilts of Valor will be on display at the Vandalia Branch of the Dayton Metro Library during regular operating hours. The quilts are displayed in the Opportunity Space of the Branch. Patrons will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite quilts.
The quilts will be awarded to veterans and active duty members of the US military. Forms are available at the Branch to nominate veterans to receive a quilt. Recipients are considered in the order applications are received. If there are more applications than QOVs made in 2022, names will be held into 2023.
Please contact Nonda Harvey, firstname.lastname@example.org, regarding more information about the Quilts of Valor program, or if you are interested in participating in next year's event. If desired, masks and hand sanitizer are available at the Library.
