429 Blankets of Hope and Counting!
Since 2010, the Ladies of Our Lady of Perpetual Help #2206 of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas have been meeting monthly at St. Jerome Catholic Church in Newport News, VA to make blankets for the patients at Landstuhl.
"Of course the Army has blankets", said Christine Hyatt. "But these are special. They are made by someone from home, with love."
Thank you Christine and the rest of the Ladies for your dedication to our wounded warriors who have given so much for all of us!
See more in this article about the group (including a note from a recipient of one of their blankets) on page 10 of CDA Share magazine.
