Make A Difference Day Update

A previous post shows lots and lots of quilts that were collected from many generous quilters here in Utah, and this was the last stop. Saturday Winnie and I delivered 22+ quilts to Archway House (for teens), and 10+ quilts to St. Anne's Shelter. Today I took 8 or 10 to the Children's Justice Center and this last bunch of 21 quilts to Catholic Charities.
We all hear of the many places that try to provide for the homeless, families in need, distressed children and on and on, but until you actually visit these places, it's hard to fully understand just how much they depend on volunteers and donations. I'm not talking about just cash donations, but baby food, diapers, toiletries and too many things to list here.

That is such a great effort to deliver all those quilts. Giving people less fortunate something so precious.

Thanks, Marina. It's easy to deliver the quilts, but not so easy to collect them! lol
