COMMUNITY SERVICES
MILITARY QUILTS
f
Since the fall of 2012, the guild has sent quilts directly to Air
Evacuation units stationed in Afghanistan.  Since the Air Force
Evacuation has ended in Afghanistan, we are now sending our
quilts to the Casualty Air Staging Facility (CASF) at Ramstein
AFB, Germany.  To date we have sent several dozen quilts that
have kept our wounded warriors warm while being air lifted to
medical facilities for further treatment of injuries.  The quilts (40"
x 60") are sized to fit the litters on which the soldiers are
transported and are of no particular pattern.  We try to make
each quilt colorful, cheerful in nature, and not too "froufrou".  
Each quilt bears the TRQG label and the maker's first name or
initials.  We will continue to send quilts as  long as our young
men and women are stationed in harms way.  Between the
veterans home and the military quilts, over 55 quilts were
donated in 2015.

VETERANS NURSING HOME QUILTS:
The guild is supporting the Kinston Veterans Home by making
lap-robe sized quilts to place on each of the beds and fidget quilts
for their memory unit.  When a sufficient number of quilts are
gathered, we take them to the nursing home along with
paper-back books members have donated.

HOME OF THE BRAVE QUILTS:
Since 2007,Twin Rivers Quilters has participated in the national
grass roots project which sends quilts to the families of military
personnel killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This project follows the
U.S. Civil War tradition of supplying quilts to soldiers.  Our quilts
are sent to families of military personnel from North Carolina.  
Thus far, we have supplied over 94 quilts to families who have
lost a loved one as an expression of our sympathy for their loss.  
In 2012, the Album Block was chosen as the official Home of the
Brave block.  It takes 15 - 12 1/2" unfinished blocks to complete
a quilt.   Pattern:
