Operation Kid Comfort
Operation Kid Comfort is a program designed to serve the children of deployed service members. The program addresses the emotional stress these children endure during a parent’s absence from home by providing an item of comfort.
Volunteers create photo-transfer quilts or pillows bearing the images of the deployed parent and deliver them to children. Children ages 5 or younger will receive a quilt and ages 5 or older a pillow. There is no cost to the child for the gift. Our only stipulation is that the quilt stays in the hands of the child; it is not meant to be on display in the home.
Submit a Request:
All requests for Operation Kid Comfort must be processed online using our program registration. Please note that after your request is submitted, the family must also email at least 9 photos for use in the quilt/pillow to our Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
