As a Guild, part of our mission is to to provide quilts to comfort our community. We currently provide quilts for: Quilts of Valor (made by a very dedicated team and given to local veterans), Peace Island Cancer Care, Pike Place pre-school (a pre-school for the the working poor), Family Resource Center, and comfort quilts for local families who have experienced a traumatic loss.
We maintain a chart for quilt donations that is kept at the Mullis Center. Use it to sign up to donate a quilt(s). The chart allows us to have a visual idea of how many quilts are being made, and what areas need more donations.
–Healing/ Comfort quilts- should be ‘lap size’; large enough to cuddle under but not bed size. These quilts are either donated for cancer care patients t Peace Island or they given in special circumstances to individuals in our community who have suffered a major traumatic, life changing, event. We need quilts for both genders.
