Operation Kid Comfort
Help young military children cope with deployment stress
Volunteers at the Armed Services YMCA create custom-made photo transfer quilts and pillows to help with the separation of deployment. 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 hand-crafted quilts and pillow help children cope with emotional stress during a parent’s deployment.
Operation Kid Comfort is offered to all active duty children, and created by loving volunteers at our branch locations across the country.
