Operation Top Knot is a group of volunteers who decided on the name because the first type of baby hats they made were called "top knot" baby hats.
As the group grew, volunteers began creating other knitted, crocheted, and sewn gifts to donate to our soldier's most precious bundle . . . . their new born child. The not-so-crafty members of this group donate purchased items such as rattles, bottles, pacifiers, diapers, layette sets, cards, coupons and gift bags, which are also needed and greatly appreciated.
The gift packages are shipped out on a monthly basis to military hospitals, where nurse liaisons hand them out to the new mothers on the groups behalf. However the Moms donÃ¢ÂÂt have to be in a military hospital to receive a gift. If an Angel (a volunteer member of Soldiers Angels) notifies Operation Top Knot of an expectant mother, a gift will be sent directly to her wherever she is.
The Top Knot team also remembers the father in a special way. To help him celebrate this special occasion, he is sent a box of special cigars - pink A Girl or blue It's A Boy bubble gum cigars. This way there he can hand them out to his friends in celebration of the arrival of his newborn child, just like he would do if he were at home.
It is clear that Operation Top Knot works hard to ensure no mother or baby goes unloved, and to remind them that they too, along with our soldiers are loved and supported by their country during a time when they most need it.
By taking care of the families back home, we help to maintain healthy heroes and happy families nationwide.
