The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
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.
