We love it when our chapters get the recognition in their communities that they deserve!

 

Barb Lucas, Chapter Leader of San Antonio Military, shared a recently published article by Stefanie Arias in My SA.

 

Last year, the group donated 518 quilts to children; this year, their goal is 600!  In addition to comforting seriously ill children, quilts are also given to kids whose parents have returned from duty ill or injured.

Turning Tears into Smiles in Baton Rouge

Posted by pam on November 15th, 2013

It's all about the kids, and no one reminds us of that as often as our Baton Rouge Chapter leader, Sharon Hicks.  When she delivers to Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital, her team is allowed to deliver directly to the children.

 

This month, they were able to put smiles on the faces of three very ill cancer patients.

Sharon writes, "It was not a good day for a lot of personal deliveries to the kids as there was a lot going on.  The three quilts to the three cancer patients were received with joy and gladness.  The little boy (Tim) was so weak but he smiled and waved to me.

 

It was so touching, the last little girl was able to blow kisses. The baby took the quilt and grabbed it to her."

 

We are so grateful to all of our 97 chapters for sharing QFK ...
