Jan. 3, 2019 Comfort Quilt Report
During December 2018 we received two calls to thank us for our donations and to ask for more quilts. YEA!! 😊
*Northwest Kidney Center in Enumclaw called to say how much they appreciated our quilts and asked for more quilts. The center wants quilts to be 40-42 by 60 inches approximately.
*St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw called to thank us for our quilt donations. We have been donating several each month, since June 2018. St. Elizabeth’s chaplain told me that the patients love the quilts and appreciated the work that went into sewing them. She was thrilled that Enumclaw’s quilters were supporting the hospital. We donate about 4 quilts a month. Any size will work, lap size or larger.
We do not have many completed quilts on hand, so we hope you help us supply quilts to these two medical facilities.
