Coffee Creek Quilters instructors sewed 163 pillowcases this holiday season for donation to the Sleep Country Foster Kids program. This has become an annual tradition that parallels the donation of quilts made throughout the year by students in our prison quilting program.
In addition to pillowcases, Sleep Country accepts donations of pajamas, shoes, clothing, school supplies, coats, and toys. Cash donations are also welcome. Sleep Country started the Foster Kids program in 2005 with the goal of improving the lives of thousands of foster kids in the Northwest. The program makes it possible for foster youth to take part in healthy and productive extracurricular activities, gain independent living skills, and even go to college.
