Donations

The guild takes great pride in providing donations each year to our community.  Our Vice President is in charge of selecting what charities he/she would like our guild to donate to.

We have a goal as a guild to create a minimum of 100 donation quilts a year.  The main charity for our guild is Children and Family of Iowa.  However, we have given donations to Youth Homes in Johnston, Bridges Rehab Center,  Safe Haven, Women’s Violence Center, Elevate, Endure Iowa, and Sunny View Care Center.

We have also been known to be very generous with donations that are not quilts. Such examples would be cancer hats, pillowcases for the children’s ward at the hospitals, diapers for Africa, winter attire for children in need, place mats for Meals on Wheels, and so many others.  There are so many needs in our community; and we like to contribute any way our talents will allow us!!!
