An Ohio woman made a comforting gesture to some Texas Veterans of Foreign Wars and Auxiliary members following Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey.

Nancy Pressler, a member of the VFW Post 2947 Auxiliary in Freemont, Ohio, made comfort blankets as gifts for the Texas VFW and Auxiliary. She made them from January to May. Her post also donated the materials for the blankets.

From there, Gail Duhon, District 2 president for the VFW Auxiliary distributed the handmade comfort blankets.

“Nancy Pressler, Auxiliary 2947 member, sewed each blanket with love and dedication to sen a little comfort to Harvey victims in the Orange area,” Duhon said.

Prior to making the comfort blankets, Pressler made backpacks for Orangefield ISD students before Christmas to help them through the aftermath from Harvey.
