Quilts/Lap Robes for Military at VA Hospital in Temple
Hooked On Threads, area sewing groups and Area Ladies Auxiliary Organizations are teaming up to provide quilts/lap robes for the Temple VA Hospital at Christmas. They will be given to wounded soldiers, including hospice patients and those suffering from mental issues. This project will make a great impact on the patients’ lives for years to come.
We will personally hand out the gifts at the Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Medical Center, Temple. The distribution date will be December 14th at 11 am in Temple for all those who would like to be there in person. More details are forthcoming.
The pieces can be quilted, crocheted, knitted or made with fleece or fabric (see specifications). The pieces are to be dropped off at The Plaza, 705, Hwy 281, Suite 100, Marble Falls on Mondays 1:00 pm-3:00 pm from now through Monday, December 10. Contact Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 517-6681 for details and specifications. Hooked on Threads can also pick them up from you. We hope to have several hundred to donate to the VA! There is still time to get started and be a part of this heartfelt project.
