This year, in keeping with our goal to support our service members, veterans, and their families in their time of need, the 2020 recipient of our fundraising will be American Gold Star Mothers of Northern California.
Since 1928, American Gold Star Mothers of Northern California has carried forth one singular and noble mission. Their motto says it best: We honor through service.
Gold Star Mothers are mothers whose children died while in military service, or died as a result of that service, or are missing in action. To keep the memory of their sons and daughters alive, Gold Star Mothers raise funds for veterans, active-duty service members, and their families, as well as other Gold Star families.

2020 marks the seventh year that Eileen Ehrsam has graciously donated one of her beautiful, handmade patriotic blankets to help raise money for our charity of choice. Eileen, who has served on the Pen Air FCU Board of Directors for over 13 years, continually goes above and beyond. For this reason, we would like to take the opportunity to honor and thank her for her amazing creativity and generosity of time and talent.
This year's blanket is a Patriotic Ripple Red, White, and Blue Afghan designed by Sue Solakian and handmade by Eileen Ehrsam. There are thirteen Stars and Stripes in this patriotic ripple and measures 72" x 72". Eileen used 6,552 yards of Red Heart Yarn and it took her 56 hours to complete this lovely afghan.
