Local Area Quilt Project
Many of us are aware of our blessings and are moved to acknowledge those blessings by serving and giving of our time and substance.
We are asking for and will be gathering double/full (approx. 90"x90") and crib (approx. 45"x60") sized quilts for local distribution.
Families in need will receive these both practical and symbolic gifts as gestures of warmth and comfort. Many of our area families have been dramatically affected by recent and current economic events. Their circumstances will make some of the most basic acquisitions a luxury.
Unlike the quilts that have been produced for international distribution through Salt Lake City, these quilts may utilize any appropriate fabric, including those that have seasonal or holiday themes.
Those who are moved to respond to this suggestion or invitation are asked to bring or send their donations to the Humanitarian Room, at 3750 West Craig Road, North LV, indicating "for Local Quilt Project" on the donation(s).
