Aubree Leitermann

November, 2018

Aubree starting making blankets in 2014 for veterans transported on medical flights. Since then, she has made over 100 blankets to give to veterans in nursing homes, local veterans who are ill, veterans in the Town of King, and veterans on Florida's air medical transports. She has worked closely with Desert Storm Veterans in Green Bay and the Fox Valley. The materials for making the blankets are purchased solely with donated funds. Aubree makes all the blankets herself, with help from her friends at Footworks Dance Company and members of the Kimberly community. As of this year, she has hosted four blanket-making events. Aubree says she will continue making blankets as long as there is a need for them.

For her selfless dedication to honoring and serving the veterans of the Fox Valley, Aubree is awarded a Wisconsin Hero Award.
