Lap Robes for Veterans

December 30, 2019

Lap Robes for Veterans is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization who create and donate lap robes for veterans. The organization was founded by Nancy Vanapeldoorn, what started out as one lap robe at a time has grown to the production of thousands of lap robes due to the interest and support of volunteers each year. The lap robes are a way to say “Thank You for Your Service.”

But what is a lap robe? It is a quilted blanket measuring large enough to cover one’s lap and legs handcrafted with love and appreciation by volunteers. All materials used to create these lap robes come from donations. Nancy says “As long as we have the community’s support, we will continue to quilt lap robes for our veterans.”

Donations can be made to FLACE – Lap Robes for Veterans online, or mailed to FLACE Lap Robes for Veterans, 1062 Railway Crossing, Webster, NY 14580. Have questions? Contact Pat at [email protected].
