Kids attending a special summer camp for grieving children will receive quilts made by CCQ members. We made the quilts for Camp Erin, where young people learn to cope with the loss of a loved one. Camp Erin is a national program funded by the Moyer Foundation. Camps are held in 18 cities throughout the country and open to children between the ages of 6 and 17. The camp is free for kids; funding comes from the Moyer Foundation and local groups. Oregon’s Camp Erin is administered by the Providence Foundation and takes place this year at Camp Kuratli in Boring, OR, August 16-18.
A group of quilters from St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Gladstone have been Coffee Creek Quilters supporters for several years. They collect money in a “coffee can for Coffee Creek” and send the proceeds to us for our Sponsor a Quilter initiative. These quilters heard about our fundraiser at A Place To Be Cafe on Sunday, August 4th, and decided to come for lunch to support us. We appreciate their generosity!
Quilts crafted by women incarcerated at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility will be on display throughout the month of August at The Place To Be Cafe (P2B) in Canby. Quilts made by CCQ instructors will also be exhibited and offered for sale as part of our fundraising.
P2B is dedicating Sunday August 4th as a special fundraising event for Coffee Creek Quilters. On that day, P2B will donate 25% of sales to CCQ. P2B’s menu includes coffee roasted by Portland’s Water Avenue Coffee, tea, bubble tea, cold beverages, delicious panini sandwiches made to order, soup, salads, and lovely pastry items. The cafe will be open to all on August 4th from 11 am to 3 pm.
The CCQ exhibit is part of The Place To Be Cafe’s Mission Possible initiative to support local nonprofits. The Cafe is located at 190 NW 2nd Ave, Canby. It’s open Monday to Thursday, 7 am to 7 pm; Friday, 7 am to 9 pm; Saturday, 8 am to 4 pm; and Sunday 11 am to 3 pm.
