Miracle Quilts delivers to Walter Reed

VETERANS AFFAIRS: Miracle Quilts delivers to Walter Reed medical center, VFW National Home for Children
Published: Friday, December 07, 2012

Miracle Quilts is in its fourth year of providing quilts to wounded troops that are currently in the hospital in Michigan and Washington, D.C. The quilts are constructed by numerous volunteers of all ages. Many caring hands go into the quilting process and finishing of each quilt for the wounded service member.

Last month Miracle Quilts, represented by founder Carole Carroll and Judy Miracle, mother of PFC Joseph Miracle, for whom the project is named, hand-delivered 171 quilts to Walter Reed National Medical Military Center, Washington, D.C.; Fort Belvoir Hospital, Fort Belvoir -Fisher House and Fisher House; Silver Spring, Md.

Carroll and Miracle met with Dan Wagner, Army Legislative Fellow of U.S. Congressman Mike Roger’s office, who assisted with making the appropriate contacts to deliver the quilts to the different venues.

In the cooler months, the quilts are greatly appreciated due to the hospitals being kept at much cooler temperatures.
