CCQ was honored to receive a $1000 grant from IBM’s On Demand Community, which supports business solutions for organizations in which the corporation’s retirees volunteer. CCQ board member Martha Messa is an IBM retiree, and the grant was awarded thanks to her efforts.
Seventeen children and teenagers attending a special summer camp for grieving children received comfort quilts from Coffee Creek Quilters in 2011. CCQ members – instructors and volunteers – challenged themselves to make the quilts for Camp Erin, part of the Providence Healthcare system, where young people learn to cope with the loss of a loved one. A total of 60 campers participated in the program.
