Just wanted to thank you for reposting info regarding the recent Quilts for OK! (Quilt Drive for OK Tornado Victims) I initiated.
We began the Drive with one post on Facebook, and off it went!
So very many kind donors mentioned that they read about it on your blog! We believe well over 1500+ quilts have been received at my Studio in Tulsa- aren’t quilters amazing??!!!
Thankfully I was contacted by Janice Grimes of “Quilts of Compassion” from Toledo OH after the FB posting. We were happy to partner with them as we were totally overwhelmed with the kind and generous response we were experiencing!
Our Drive ended early in June, and I was wondering if you might post that our Studio’s part is over, but if there are still those who wish to help…please send directly to Quilts of Compassion at:
Quilts of Compassion
PO Box 350296
Toledo, OH 43635
If you have any questions, please contact me, or Janice Grimes (419) 708-9343. You can see all the wonderful blessings the quilt donations have been on the Quilts of Compassion’s Facebook Page. They have already made 2 trips to Moore, OK and vicinity to distribute the quilts!
Many thanks again,Alternately, there are quilts being collected for the Calgary, Alberta Canada area – they have been flooded to the max and there are many out of their homes. Quilts are needed there.
For anyone wanting to donate quilts to those affected in the Calgary and Canmore area by the recent flooding please send your donations to:
"Quilting for Calgary"
38 Rockbluff Close NW,
Calgary, AB T3G 5B1
Please be aware it will be several days before your donations can be distributed as many of our roads are still closed and we are being asked by officials to stay home.
Many of our evacuees are still in the process of being moved/shuffled to other facilities as officials learn where needs can best be met so we are still in a state of flux. Donations will be distributed as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.
Thanks so much for your willingness to help, everyone!
