Operation Bundles Of Joy Is Supported by
The Armed Forces Foundation
Our mission is to provide newborns of our military servicemen and their families with "Bundles Of Joy" packages that include handmade and new baby items. We also provide stuffed animals, dolls and books to older children of our soldiers, through our Buddies And Books program.
|How You Can Help...
America is the land of the free BECAUSE of the brave! While our soldiers are deployed, they worry about the families that they have left behind. We can help ease their worries by supporting these military famlies, and caring for them, while our troops are off caring for the world.
Operation Bundles Of Joy is an on-going project, and always in need of donations of all types, including things such as blankets, t-shirts, bibs, diapers and diaper bags, bottles, and any other baby-related items.
These items will be distributed to military families through our friends at the Armed Forces Foundation.
We also accept donations of yarn, fabric, batting, or other materials that can be used by our volunteers to make baby items.
You can also support us by supporting the Armed Forces Foundation. Please visit their How You Can Help page at: http://armedforcesfoundation.org/support/index.cfm

Do you knit, crochet, sew or quilt?
While we accept all types of donations, some of the ones that mean the most are those that have been lovingly handmade. You can make something as simple as a pair of booties, or as complex as an afghan or quilt. Click on the link below to find free patterns!
