QFK Coldspring, TX, Chapter recently donated 26 quilts to San Jacinto County Sheriff's Office.  These quilts will be placed in emergency vehicles and used to comfort children who are injured, ill or in crisis.

 

They will make another delivery soon to the Sheriff's office so they will have enough quilts to place 2 in each vehicle.

 

All San Jacinto County Fire Department Vehicles and First Responders now are supplied with quilts, and Coldspring volunteers will maintain their supplies as needed.

Too Many Quilts?

Not a chance!

 

Betty Wright, the Northeast Georgia chapter president of Quilts for Kids, recently reached out to Athens Regional Pediatrics to offer a new volunteer partnership. Her team is passionate about quilting — so much so that their overflowing stock of quilts begged for homes. But who could benefit?

negaOver the past three-and-a-half years, her prolific chapter has donated over 1400 quilts to children who are sick, homeless or in foster care, and as of October 26th, Athens Regional has been added to the list.

With the help of Susan Rice's quilting group, they hope to make monthly visits to the facility and put a quilt into the hands of every child.

“I only hope I can keep up with the needs and wants of the kids at ARMC. I know I’m going to enjoy trying,” Rice said.
