The Charitable Quilts Committee for Arapahoe County Quilters focuses on making quilts for local organizations, including:
House of Hope
Colorado Pregnancy and Newborn Loss Services
Mount St. Vincent's Children’s Home
Denver Health Medical
Parker Adventist Hospital
We have many volunteers who participate in our endeavors. We assemble kits with pre-cut fabrics and instructions to hand out to volunteers each month at our meetings. When they have finished a top it is returned and quilted.

The Denver Metro Area Long Arm Quilters and other long-arm volunteers throughout the Denver area machine quilt some of our charitable quilts.
CPNLS provides provides a special service to parents after a loss. We as a group are able to help in a very small way by making little blankets.
Pick up a kit at guild meetings. It's a small effort from us, yet it makes a tremendous difference to the families who receive these blankets.
