Fleece Projects

In the cold winter months, we include a lovingly handmade fleece hat, scarf or neck gaiter in each Care Package to keep our troops warm. To make this happen, we need the sewing talents of our volunteers across the country.

Whether you make fleece hats, scarves, or neck gaiters, we have designed each project to be made by both experienced and novice sewists. These projects can be made with a simple needle and thread or quickly run through a sewing machine.


Operation Gratitude in Action

We now have a Facebook group called Operation Gratitude in Action for our Handmade With Love donors and we hope you’ll join us! Come and meet volunteers from across the country, share pictures of your work, and join our virtual crafting circles!

Every Tuesday evening and Thursday afternoon, we have Zoom meetups and chat that brings together our volunteers for some crafting and chatting. You do not need to be a crafter to join the conversation!

You can find the links to our Zoom meeting in the “events” menu of the group.
