Operation Cozy Comfort - 2008
WestPoint Home is proud to have joined together with celebrity designer Chris Madden to donate Chris Madden® Plush Blankets for JCPenney to wounded American soldiers serving in Iraq.
The Blue Star Mothers of America Inc., a national Veteran Service organization founded in 1942, organized the effort to bring a "touch of home" to the Air Force Hospital in Iraq. Replacing regulation blankets with soft and comforting remembrances of home for American service men and women was an opportunity that WestPoint Home was honored to be asked to be a part of.
Blue Star Mother and Michigan Blue Water Chapter President Carla Brodacki originated the idea. "As a mother of an Airman," she says, "whose son has been deployed twice, I can assure you that there is no finer, softer, more consoling blanket available that we could send to our injured sons and daughters to reassure them that they are loved and cared for from home. For our troops, receiving the Chris Madden® Plush Blanket will be like getting a hug sent to them directly from their families. My thanks from the bottom of my heart to Chris Madden and WestPoint Home for volunteering so quickly to be a part of our Operation Cozy Comfort."
