COMMUNITY  SERVICE 

     Our Community Service Program supports our Lowcountry community by making charity quilts which are donated to local nonprofit organizations who provide relief to the poor, the distressed, the underprivileged, the elderly and veterans or advocate for families suffering from domestic violence, rape or child abuse, such as Bluffton Self Help, Hopeful Horizons, CAPA and Penn Center.   




April 2021 Community Service Work Day

We held our first in-person event on April 6 at the Hilton Head Island Hargray office. It was wonderful to get together with members and begin to emerge from the past year's restrictions. The room capacity is limited to 10 at a time, but we didn't come close to that at any time, so if you were leery about social distancing, please be assured that coming back to Community Service days is fun and safe. We were able to sort through some of the enormous stash of completed tops that you have been creating, and get kits and quilts ready for distribution. Members dropped off 4 completed quilts and 14 "sandwiches" and some pre-cut kits were picked up.

We have a supply of sandwiched quilts and precuts that are available. You can contact me and we'll arrange for delivery or pick up as you like. Plenty of space to work, and lots to do!

OUTREACH PROGRAMS

     Our Outreach Program works with local organizations who provide services to seniors, schools and veterans.  We provide wheelchair bags, memory mats and lap quilts to veterans and retirement communities, and offer workshops for local schools. 


2022 OUTREACH PROJECT

Member Margie Macready, who is a district representative for the Quilts of Valor Foundation, along with Lisa Jacobsen and Ginger Michael attended a luncheon October 15 where four quilts were presented to SSG Edward Jenkins, Sgt Carlos Ortiz-Mendoza, SPC Alex Nicolas, and SSG Christopher Witcig. They are all active-duty members of the 82nd Airborne Division currently stationed at Fort Bragg, NC and were being hosted that weekend by the 82nd Airborne Veterans group headed by Bill Eberle, who we got to meet at the September Guild meeting.They must have liked us--we've been invited back for the October 21, 2023 meeting. We like them too--already have four more quilts ready to go.

Thank you to all the Guild members who made red, white and blue squares, finished tops, quilted the quilts and made a quilt.
