This program started in 1998 by Supreme Chamberlain Leo and Sultana Rita Serowik and since then we have distributed 2252 Afghans. The program’s purpose was to distribute afghans for the comfort of intellectually disabled people who reside in group homes. These afghans are hand-crafted by volunteers and donated to the Order of Alhambra. Today members of the Order may order afghans by calling 248-545-5086. This highly-successful Operation Cover-Up program is overseen by Sultana Betty Nichols. If you are interested in becoming one of our Operation Cover-up Crocheters please contact Betty. We supply the yarn, postage and pattern. All you supply is the time and love.
