Hero Pillowcase Project

THIS PROJECT IS CLOSED
Thank you for all who helped make this happen.

As a parent of a US Army Soldier and my time as an active duty Airman in the US Air Force, I know about deployments. Being away from home, family, the places of comfort is tough but we do it because that’s what being in the military is about. The sacrifices being made by our military men & women is something not many can understand but hopefully all can appreciate.

There is an Aviation Company from Ft Hood that will be deploying to defend our freedoms, so when having a conversation with one of the NCOs we decided what a great way to let them know how much we appreciate their service but to make them pillowcases using Super Hero themed fabrics.

We had a lot of interest when I published a post on my Facebook page and had people sponsor and purchase fabrics for me to use in making these pillowcases.

Our sponsors are:
JoAnn S. of MI, Lori & Michaela of NC, Judi B of CA, Thomas of NC, Cam & Jay of NC, and
Marlene of CA who is making some pillowcases.

Pictured are just a few of the fabrics we have for the pillowcases. If you are interested in sending cards or notes to be mailed with these pillowcases, please have them to me NLT 10NOV2017. As of 22 Oct all pillowcases have been completed. We will actually be adding a couple more before mailing as numbers have changed.

Mailing address for Notes & Cards:

22NOV17 UPDATE
There were a few Soldiers that did not get a pillowcase and with the help of Ms Judi of CA we were able to purchase all the fabrics for the remaining pillowcases and they are all done now. Will be getting some snacks to fill the box with and get it in the mail after Thanksgiving.

This was the last pillowcase being finished this morning.
