SUPPORTING OUR MILITARY FAMILIES
Operation Kid Comfort provides support for children of military families, who have a parent that is deployed. Operation Kid Comfort will provide military children with a quilt or pillow that is made out of pictures of both the child and his/her deployed parent. It is our hope that with our help, each child will feel closer to his/her parent while they are so many miles away.
Info To Know
• Ages 7 and under will recieve a quilt. Ages 8 and up will recieve a pillow.
• Parent must be deployed for a minimum of 6 months.
• Must provide 8-10 photos. 1 photo must be the parent in uniform.
