Operation Kid Comfort
We strive to make deployment as easy as possible on the children. Upon request, Operation Kid Comfort provides every child, age six and under, with an original quilt made from photos submitted by his or her parent. For children seven and older, a pillow is made. Each keepsake is hand-made by a volunteer and donated with love and good wishes for the recipient child. The finished quilt or pillow, filled with pictures of family, provide military children with warm memories that help carry them through their parent’s deployment.
