CCQ donated 140 quilts in 2019

Student quiltCCQ gave 140 student-made quilts to six community organizations in 2019. The quilts were crafted by women in our prison quilting program in classes we teach in the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility dining room. Recipients of the quilts include:

Each student in our program makes three quilts. The first two are for donation and they keep the third quilt. We poll our students periodically to ask them what types of organizations they would like to support. They’ve told us they want to give quilts to organizations that support foster kids, hospice programs, and families in need.

A thank-you from Camp Erin

We received this thank-you note from the Providence Camp Erin Team for quilts we gave them last summer.

Camp Erin is a fun, high-energy overnight camp that provides emotional support and grief education for children and teens ages 6 to 17 who have experienced the death of a loved one. Each participant receives a quilt.

Camp Erin is a national program funded by the Eluna Foundation. Camps are held in 46 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The camp is free for kids; funding comes from Eluna and local groups. Oregon’s Camp Erin is administered by the Providence Foundation and takes place at Camp Kuratli in Boring, OR.

CCQ donates quilts to Kinship House

Kinship House donationJust in time for the holidays, CCQ members delivered 23 quilts to Kinship House, a Portland nonprofit that provides mental health services to kids in foster care. The Kinship House mission is to help minimize transitions and increase the chances of children settling into a stable, healthy, and permanent home. You can learn more about Kinship House on their website.

In the Coffee Creek Quilters prison quilting program, our students each make three quilts. The first two are for donation to organizations like Kinship House while students get to keep their third quilts.

We know that our quilts are much appreciated and look forward to continuing to provide quilts for donation.
