Who receives the quilts and laundry bags that are made by the volunteers?
All quilts and laundry bags made by our volunteers are sent directly to members of the Australian Defence Force (Army, Navy or Air Force) as well as veterans of all three services.
Why do we make laundry bags?
The guys and gals are issued with white, blue or green laundry bags and the only way to tell one from another is by hand written initials usually in black marker pen. According to my sources bags go missing all the time as people collect the wrong bag in error. Therefore, we make unique laundry bags for our Defence members to easily identify their laundry.
