Philanthropy – giving comfort and love to others – is a major part of our guild’s mission. Last year we donated 59 quilts to children facing major medical issues at the Ronald McDonald House, 47 quilts to veterans at the VA Home in Chula Vista, and 6 quilts to fire victims. We also made 123 quilted placemats for Meals-On-Wheels, to give the shut-ins they serve, at Christmas.
Each of our members is asked to donate at least one quilt per year to further our philanthropic efforts. Quilt kits are provided to members. A group of guild members get together yearly to cut and put these kits together, made out of donated fabric. It is a lot of fun, working with so many friendly members, getting to know each other better. Our guild is friendly members, helping each other and the community.
This will brighten someone's day!
