Here is an opportunity to do something that will
Impact The Community!
Help Don make a difference
There are many ways to volunteer,
from walking door to door to hosting fundraising events.
Here are ways you can help:
Anyone may join our local group for free; however, if you would like to be a "card-carrying" member of the National Quilts of Valor organization, the annual fees are $5.00. Our group meets the first Tuesday of each month between 10:00am and 8:00pm at Satin Stitches, 705 Vandiver Drive, Columbia, MO. Starting in January 2020 the meeting date will change to the first Wednesday of the month.
**Please Note: If you plan to attend only in the evening hours, please inform the Satin Stitches owner, Gail. Also, if you have told her you will be present in the evening and your plans change, please call and inform her so she can plan her schedule accordingly.
We would love to have you attend the next meeting/work day!

REQUEST A QUILT
How to request a quilt:
Identify a veteran you know or whose name has been provided to you by a friend or family member.
Nominations can be submitted through the National website (www.qovf.org)
Quilts are presented annually on Veteran’s Day and throughout the year when a specific need or request is presented, either for an individual or a group.
**Please note: Requests of QOV for service members currently deployed in a combat zone will be deferred until the recipient's return
We bring a national emphasis to our Mid-MO Veterans by awarding hundreds of QOV quilts to local brave service men and women. The warmth felt by a quilt evokes an emotional and physical response that Veterans have not always been able to express. Mid-MO QOV is an all-volunteer organization that relies totally on donations to make the quilts (average $250 each) that are awarded to our Mid-MO Veterans. Therefore, all donations of cash, fabric, and other quilting supplies are greatly appreciated. Click below to learn more about how to donate to Mid-Missouri Quilts of Valor.
