Quilts for Kids News
I receive the monthly Quilts for Kids newsletters.
They're always enjoyable...you get a glimpse of the lives touched by our quilts.
The newsletter celebrated that 1446 quilts were donated to children's hospitals in August alone!
It sounds like they've been busy in other ways as well.
Still giving quilts to children, they donated to a variety of needs...
They gave quilts to Wavery, TN, after the terrible floods they've endured.
Quilts for Kids was able to send out over 100 quilts to children who lost their homes in these massive floods.
They also gave 250 quilts to evacuees from Afghanistan in New Jersey.
The organization has future plans to send quilts out all the way to California to help with families who have been affected by the wildfires.
And then there's Hurricane Ida.
Children who have been affected by the horrific storm are being comforted as well.
All these quilts were made by people just like you and me.
So keep up the good work!
