Charitable Activities - January 2022

I am pleased and proud to report that Arapahoe County Quilters Guild donated over 300 quilts to 6 different locations. These locations were suggested by ACQ members and were chosen to give some joy to people experiencing hardships. Thank you to the amazing and talented ACQ members who took part in a most successful year for Charity Quilts. 

303 Quilts donated to 6 locations (13 deliveries)

   20    Florence Crittenton (Family resource for teen mothers)

  22    Warren Village (Home for low income single parent families)

  31    Children’s Hospital Anschutz Medical Campus

  36    Marisol Family Home Catholic Charities (Survivors of domestic abuse)

  36    Volunteers of America Clermont Commons (Women Veterans)

158     Volunteers of America Family Motel (Emergency homeless situations)

At the end of December, I decided to put together a Snowball quilt for my new baby granddaughter. Since this little person does not care about colors or patterns, I picked the pattern as I am wishing for snow here in Denver. Yes, I will put together a few kits to hand out something fun and easy for Charity Quilts. I listed a couple of websites to share the pattern and inspire fellow ACQ members.

I look forward to the next ACQ Drive-Through scheduled for Saturday, January 22, 2022. If this date and time does not work for you, please contact me by email so we can arrange a pick up for blocks, kits, tops, fabric or completed quilts.
