Camp Quilts
We continue 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 regular distribution. 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!
