Quilts for kids entering foster care

This post is going to be a quick little post.  It actually has jumped in line, because it is of a time sensative nature.

Last week while on facebook, I came across a local post. Adel Family Denistry had posted that they were acting as a collection point for donations.  The Iowa Order of the Eastern Star are assembling "Kids Comfort Kits", filled with items of comfort for children entering foster care in Dallas County.  

Here is a link to the post:


What caught my eye was that they were looking for small blankets, pillow cases and small stuffed animals.   As luck would have it we have some of those items available for donation.  Their project married well with our Hope Quilt donations.  

I spent a portion of last Wednesday, getting our donation ready.  Thursday morning I delivered these to them.

There are 17 quilts there.  15 pillow cases, and a bag of Beanie Babies.  

They were very grateful for our donation, and I am hoping that we will be able to assist them with future donations.

Please take a minute and check out the items that they are hoping will be donated.  Many of the items they are looking for are hygene items.  The targeted age group is 4 to 12.

Next week I am going to show you the awesome quilts that Betty W. donated.  All of which are part of this donation.

Have a great week!
