Quilts for Warriors

Quilts For Warriors is a nationwide initiative to create and distribute quilts to soldiers in the US Army Warriors in Transition Units (WTU) at 33 installations worldwide.
These soldiers have been injured while serving our country and are recovering.
Our message to them: “Thank you for your service to our country and get well soon!”
Our mission is to mobilize quilt shops/retailers to invite children and youth into their classrooms to help make these quilts. With April of each year designated the Month of the Military Child, Quilts for Warriors has projects planned for the entire month of April focused on children and building quilts.
