Philantropy

Current Philanthropy Efforts:

  • Guide Dogs of America 2018 Raffle Quilt.  Orange County Quilters Guild created the quilt that will be raffled off as a fund raiser for GDA in December, 2018.  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.
     
  • Vietnam Veterans Appreciation Quilt.  Orange County Quilters Guild created a quilt to present to a very deserving Vietnam Veteran during a Homecoming Ceremony long overdue at Savanna High School in Anaheim in March 2018.  Read OC Register article here for additional information.
     
  • Quilts for Kids/Vets.  Led by Lori Ferrari-McCoy and Michele Wulf, 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 later this year to thank our veterans for their service and sacrafices.  We also plan to participate in Orange County's Snuggle Days where we will donate quilts, pillowcases, and toys to make it a more joyous holiday season for those teens, children, toddlers, and babies in foster care and other temporary house.  See the current newsletter for additional information.
