The North Idaho Veterans Stand Down Program was born out of the National Veterans Stand Down Event. St. Vincent de Paul has taken it one step further and created a program of assisting veterans and their families throughout the year. The North Idaho Veteran Stand Down works closely with local veteran organizations (VFW, DAV, American Legion, Elks, Department of Labor, Kootenai County Veteran Services) to serve veterans in need within Kootenai County and the surrounding area.
Welcome to the Quilts of Valor Foundation
The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. To request a Quilt for a Veteran or service member you need to know if they have ever received one prior. If the answer is yes, do not submit a request as only one can be awarded.
To submit a request go to QOVF.ORG and fill out the "Request QOV" on upper left.
Quilts of Valor coordinator for Northern Idaho is: Jerene Kindley 208-777-0474
