Community Services has three ongoing projects for the Guild to participate in -- Making Baby Quilts for the hospital, making lap quilts for the VA Hospital and Hospice Center in Spokane, and collecting school supplies for the local schools.
Rural Resources are in need of twin-sized quilts to cover the Shelter's beds.
Ladies Aux. of the VFW donated one of our quilts to a local veteran who is living in one of our local nursing homes.
