About

Volunteers are needed throughout the Upstate of S.C. to quilt or crochet patriotic quilts, afghans or blankets for the "Final Salute" of a Veteran. One out of every four dying Americans is a Veteran. When the Veteran passes, the patriotic quilt, afghan, or blanket is draped over the gurney as a Final Salute. As they are transported, family or anyone can offer a final salute or place their hands over their heart to show their appreciation. We need volunteers like you to help ensure each Veteran is cared for with compassion and understanding of their special needs.
