Charity Spotlight – Warmth for Warriors

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we would like to introduce you to a wonderful charity that donates handmade knit and crocheted hats to comfort both active duty and retired soldiers. Warmth for Warriors is a great organization that is dedicated to thanking soldiers for their service by giving them a small but incredibly meaningful token of appreciation.

This note from a soldier who received a handmade hat says it all:

Warmth for Warriors“I just wanted to say thank you! What a great surprise to have received the hats the other day. I came back from a mission dirty, hungry, and tired; you brought a great smile to all of our faces. I think most of my soldiers slept with your hats on the same day/night. God bless you all, and thank you for what you do.” SFC K. F.

If your craft group would like to knit or crochet a few hats to thank these brave heroes for everything they do, please use wool or another natural fiber in a dark color to ensure your donations will stand up to the wear and tear our soldiers experience.

Our soldiers do so much for our country, and it is an honor to have the opportunity to give them a thoughtful gift that will be greatly appreciated.
