Slideshow of our sewing day at ViaSat.
On Saturday, February 7, 2015 the National Quilts of Valor Sew Day was held across the country with almost 1900 participants. Over 600 tops were made that day and I'm happy to say that our group made 37!
On Wednesday, June 24th, June Harrison, Adrian Haskamp (who is a Marine Reservist and works at ViaSat) and I delivered the 37 Quilts of Valor which were made at the ViaSat-sponsored Sew Day to the Wounded Warrior Battalion (West) at Camp Pendleton. We were warmly met by Yosef Levine, Charitable Giving Coordinator, and several Corpsmen and were given a short tour of their beautiful facility and information about their work with our wounded, ill and injured service members. The mission of the Wounded Warrior Battalion (West) (WWBa-W) is to “provide and facilitate assistance to wounded, ill and injured Marines, sailors and their family members throughout their phases of their recovery in order to successfully return them to full duty or transition to civilian life.” We had a mountain of paperwork to complete to get our quilts into Camp Pendleton but now that we have that behind us, they are very open to receiving future donations. Once we began pulling the quilts out of their presentation cases, they understood the effort that went into each and every quilt and were impressed!
