Philantropy

Current Philanthropy Efforts:

  • Guide Dogs of America 2016 Raffle Quilt.  Orange County Quilters Guild created the quilt that will be raffled off as a fund raiser for GDA on Dec 10, 2016.  This worthy cause breeds, raises, and trains seeing eye dogs for vision impaired individuals.  They receive no government money and the dogs (and training, travel, etc.) are provided free of charge to those in need.  Buy a ticket or two (or more) to support this organization.  Tickets can be purchased through GDA or at an Orange County Quilters Guild meeting.
     
  • Quilts for Vets.  Led by Joyce Bailey and Lucina Moses, kits and quilts in progress are available at OCQG meetings for members to work on and turn back in.  Or make one from your own stash/pattern, if you like.  A delivery to the Long Beach VA is planned for this summer to thank our veterans for their service and sacrafices.  See the current newsletter for additional information.
     
  • Quilts for Kids.  Led by  Laura Lynch, Debbie Charles, Nancy Grant & Kristin Stonham, the guild members are busy making quilts & pillow cases for lots of babies, kids & teens.  Stop by their table at an OCQG general meeting to see how you can help!  Also, information is available in the current newsletter.
