With another large deployment of the 82nd Airborne, we are looking to raise $3,000 to provide 100 military children a no-cost personalized quilt or pillow case. Operation Kid Comfort provides quilts and pillowcases with images of the deployed service member to military children at no-cost to the family.
Assembled by dedicated volunteers throughout the country, these items cost an average of $30 each to assemble and provide to families. Today we ask you to support a military child missing their deployed loved one by sponsoring a quilt or pillowcase, which allows them to “be with” mom and dad even though they may physically be half a world apart.
This program not only provides support to military children at home, but also to the deployed service member. One parent shared, "Operation Kid Comfort ensured that my daughter would not forget me during my deployment.”
