BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Melbourne Police recently hosted the Quilts of Valor event at the Community Resource Center at Melbourne Square to honor veterans.
“The beautiful work and the love stitched into every quilt is a comfort to our local Veterans. We appreciate all your work QOV,” said Melbourne Police.
The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a grassroots organization whose mission is to award healing Quilts of Valor to veterans and military personnel.
The organization was first started in 2003 by Catherine Roberts of Delaware when she made and awarded a quilt to a recovering soldier in the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Since that time, over 159,000 quilts have been awarded to veterans and military personnel.
