The Elk Grove Quilt Guild has joined in with the national grassroots community service effort of the Quilts of Valor Foundation ( ). The Foundation began with Blue Star mom Catherine Roberts in 2003. Her original goal was to see that returning troops from overseas were welcomed home with love and gratitude for their service. Over time, the Foundation's mission has evolved to cover all service men and women as well as veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. Our Guild participates by creating quilts and awarding them to veterans in our local community.
