Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care
A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
1 person is interested
We are looking for quilters and knitters who are interested in donating to the NorthCare and Kansas City Hospice Houses. Quilts and afghans will be used to brighten patient rooms and to make family members and patients feel more at home during their stay at the Hospice House. Family members will be invited to take the quilt or afghan home with them at the end of their stay.
Quilts and Afghans must be made of new materials and be machine washable.
Batting is not required.
Preferred size is approximately 5’ x 5’. Other sizes are appreciated also.
We ask that afghans be lightweight .
We are also always looking for individuals or groups who like to make and donate patriotic quilts for our Veterans. Each Veteran patient is presented with a quilt and a certificate thanking them for their service.
Standards are the same for these quilts.
Many times fabric is donated to us, and we can pass it along to quilters willing to support our program.
