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.

Quilts for donation

Trip Around the WorldHappy new year to all of our wonderful donors and supporters!

We’re thrilled to report that women in the Coffee Creek Quilters prison quilting program made 125 quilts for donation in 2017. The quilts went to Emanuel, Good Samaritan, and Legacy Meridian Park Hospitals, Community Warehouse, and a variety of other programs that support people in need of comfort.

Each student in our program makes three quilts. The first two are for donation while students keep their third quilts. As we work on the first and second quilts, we sometimes speculate about who might receive them. A quilt with super-hero fabric might go to a kid in foster care while one with pink floral fabrics might go to an elderly woman in hospice.

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