On her blog post – Quilts for the South–Calling All Quilters! – Bonnie Hunter shared an email she received from Janice Grimes, the coordinator for Quilts of Compassion.
Plans have been finalized for the deployments of the Disaster Response Team & QUILTERS, your help is NEEDED!!!
The first team will deploy 5/26 – 6/2 and the second team will deploy 6/22 – 6/27.
Help is needed from the incredibly generous quilting community to “Bring Hope & Encouragement to the Hurting” in these communities. The estimated need is a minimum of 1500 quilts for the 2 deployments.
Please share with all your friends, quilt guilds and quilt shops to let them know about this need and the mission of this organization. They are accepting quilts of all sizes for men, women, children and infants. They may be quilted or tied.
The goal is to receive 1500+ quilts in the next 3-6 weeks!!!
