Silver Threads Quilt Guild recently received a certificate of appreciation for the Fort Bragg Armed Services YMCA Operation Kid Comfort Programs. These programs provide children of deployed active duty service members a quilt or pillow bearing photos of the service member and their family. The deployment must be six months or more. In 2017, guild members made 84 quilts and two pillow cases for the program. Quilt requests can be submitted at www.asymca.org/blog/request-a-quilt.
