Camp Quilts
It's that time again! We began our annual collection of Camp Quilts at our March meeting and will continuing to collect camp quilts in addition to our normal monthly blanket collection. Please remember that the camp facilities can only accept quilts. Yarn and fleece blankets like leaves and twigs a bit too much for distribution at camp. We will continue to collect quilts, yarn and fleece blankets for distribution to our recipient other facilities. Camp quilts need to be made in larger sizes for school-aged children, ages 7 - 17. Thank you to everyone that donates every month and for helping to make camp quilt donations possible!
