Operation Kid Comfort

okc_melton0002-230x200

Volunteers at the Armed Services YMCA create custom-made photo transfer quilts and pillows. Each child receives a quilt or pillow; children 7 and under receive a quilt, 8 and older receive a pillow. Operation Kid Comfort quilts and pillows are for the children of our deployed active duty U.S. military service men and women. The quilts and pillows are personally handcrafted to help children cope with the emotional stress during a parent’s deployment.

The Operation Kid Comfort program is offered at the U.S. military installations listed below. If your spouse’s duty station is on the list please contact the designated ASYMCA branch/affiliate directly. If your spouse’s duty station is not listed below, the Armed Services YMCA’s Headquarters will facilitate your request.
