CCQ donated 20 quilts to Community Warehouse this month. All of the quilts were made by women incarcerated at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville. Each student in our program makes three quilts. Two are donated to organizations like Community Warehouse,
Good Samaritan Hospital, Camp Erin, and others. Students keep their third quilts or give them to loved ones.
Community Warehouse is a Portland-based “furniture warehouse” that helps families become self-sufficient by providing them with basic household furnishings. In the picture at left CCQ President Linda Downey is showing some of the donated quilts along with three Community Warehouse volunteers. When he sent us the picture, CW’s Jeremy said: “We can’t thank you enough for your donation and what these quilts will mean to our families. This donation adds that extra layer of comfort to families trying to make a new space, a home.”
