Volunteer Group Provides ‘Sew Much Comfort’ For Wounded Veterans

“Sew Much Comfort” is a volunteer group that provides adaptive clothing for injured service members free of charge, in an effort to assist with their recovery. 

This nationwide group uses their sewing skills to alter donated clothing to meet the specific needs of the injured individual.  They provide free clothing to wounded service members from the National Guard and all branches of the military that will fit over large casts, bulky prosthetics and the like.

All of the clothing is donated and funds are collected to pay for other supplies.  Last year, The Hanes Co. donated 6,000 pairs of boxer shorts.

The Sew Much Comfort group sends out the clothing, along with a kit that includes instructions and all the needed supplies to volunteers.  Typical clothing alterations include replacing seams with bias tape and Velcro so that a garment is more comfortable for someone who has trouble lifting an arm or leg.

These volunteers work at home at their own pace and do a great service by making the recovery time just a little easier for our wounded service members.
