Globally the COVID-19 pandemic has been very stressful and isolating for many individuals. In the past, family gatherings during the holiday season have offered an opportunity to reconnect with loved ones. Unfortunately this holiday season may need to be modified to reduce the spread of the virus in an effort to keep your friends, families, and communities healthy and safe. Ongoing concerns from healthcare professionals, hospitals filled to capacity, and a worsening epidemic have generated a need to scale down holiday plans.

The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a national organization founded in 2003 by “Blue Star” mom Catherine Roberts.
