Going Soft and Giving to Homeless Veterans

A soft and comfortable place to lay your head – that’s a simple need. It’s a need that Cyd Deathe hopes to fulfill for 200 homeless veterans.

Cyd is president of  the Tampa Area Marine Parents Association and a proud mom of OIF Wounded Warrior Veteran LCpl Adam, USMC 03-07.

She’s committed to providing 200 pillows for the Homeless Veterans Stand Down scheduled April 5-7 in Tallahassee. That’s this Friday through Sunday, so time is short.

What Cyd needs to provide the promised pillows:

  • Fabric of plain colors and easy to sew material
  • Stuffing or  fiber fill for pillows
  • Local volunteers to help sew
  • Sewing supplies – thread, etc.

Or if you can’t sew and don’t have any extra fabric to contribute, financial donations are welcomed too. Cyd estimates it costs about $2 to make a pillow.

If you like to sew pillows and live in the Tampa Bay area, contact Trish@USMCFamilySupport.org . Even if you don’t live in the area, you can help complete the project. Go to the T.A.M.P.A website for details.
