Foresters donates fabric for patriotic quilts

Volunteers make quilt kits for VA HospitalThe Independent Order of Foresters is partnering with Coffee Creek Quilters to make quilts for patients at the Portland VA Medical Center. Foresters purchased enough patriotic-themed fabrics and quilt batting for 14 quilts. Then volunteers from Foresters and CCQ came together on March 15th for a kit-making session. Over the next few months, students in the quilting classes at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility will sew the quilts. When the quilts are finished, Foresters volunteers will deliver the throw-sized quilts to the veterans. Funding for the fabric purchase comes from the Foresters Community Grants program, an initiative that enables Foresters members to apply for grants of up to $2,500 to fund volunteer activities that are meaningful to them and to their own communities.
