Members donate and we try to keep on hand several quilts for community members who have suffered a traumatic, life-changing event. These are generally lap size or comfort size. Recipients are chosen by the board after a guild member makes a request. The recipient must be a local resident. He or she has suffered a sudden, traumatic event. Before the quilt is delivered someone adds a dedication label to personalize the gift.
Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to designated 501c3 organizations and we are one! How easy is it?
