Supporting BC Wildfire Families
These We Care quilts were donated to families in need after the summer wildfires of 2017.
The Guild is blessed with having the most wonderful group of friendly and talented ladies as members. Our members make approximately 130 “We Care Quilts.” a year for distribution into the community. These quilts go to various groups, including, but not limited to, the hospice, hospital baby unit, mother and baby programs and victim services.
The We Care Committee usually holds a We Care Workshop once per year in the spring. All material (cotton for the top, batting and backing) is provided. Kits are also available throughout the year. WE CARE
We Care quilts are welcome all year round. The We Care Committee will supply batting and backing upon request as well as labels for the back of the quilt. Placing your name on the label is encouraged but not required.
Every second (odd) year the group make and fill 50 bags, with toiletries, gloves, socks and hats for disadvantaged youth in our community.
On display quilts brought in at the September meeting.
Our 'We Care' program received media coverage with a write-up on our community involvement through the Garrison Crossing magazine.
A huge thank you to all the members who dontated items to the Youth Bags 2018. Our annual filling of the bags day was held at the Sardis Library on Dec 2. There was a terrific turn out of volunteers who were eager to help with the task. In the end there were 25 girl and 25 boy bags filled with goodies to deliver to the needy youth of our community.

QUILTS FOR HUMBOLDT
Beatrice collected five fully finished quilts and 54 blocks made by members who were deeply touched by this tragic event. They have been sent off to Humboldt.
Just a few of the quilts turned in at the May meeting, they circled almost half of the room. Many will be kept for display at the quilt show in October.
So many quilts donated at the April meeting - some likely made at the workshop last weekend.
Turned in at the June meeting.
