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.
Wrapping cancer patients and their families in comfort and hope, one quilt at a time.
Quilts That Care is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization donates quilts to people undergoing cancer treatments, bringing them comfort, love and hope, one quilt at a time. QTC started in 2012 with a few people wanting to make a difference in the lives of people undergoing cancer treatment. We started and continue to meet at Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center two times a month; we expanded to donated factory space in Naugatuck but also continue with satellite meetings in Bristol, Litchfield and New Milford. We now are excited to be located in our newly opened Headquarters at 130 Scott Rd. We are always looking for volunteers who want to help make quilts for cancer patients. However, a person doesn’t have to sew to help. We need people to coordinate materials, iron fabrics or put together quilt kits. Do you have an eye for color? You can help pick out fabric kits for volunteers to take home and sew. If you are a quilter, we have quilts in all stages of completions. Our volunteers coordinate materials, use cutting machines for fabrics, put together kits for quilts, sandwich tops and backings, hand or embroider labels. There is always something to do. Please come lend a hand and make a difference. Every person finds their own niche or niches!
