Quilts = Caring
How You Can Comfort The Victims of The Tornado We all need to do what we do best. Make a quilt to comfort someone and let them know we care. The community of Washington is in need of all the comfort it can get! Many of you have asked how you can help. If you would like to donate a finished quilt, a finished pillowcase or a new bed pillow, please send them to our store at 127 Peddlers Way, Washington, IL 61571. We will work with local churches and relief organizations to get them Into the arms of those who need them. Please label your quilt so that the recipient will know who to thank for the generous gift. The Washington Chamber of Commerce has on their Facebook page a list of other items that you could include that would be helpful to the victims of this disastrous event. Hopefully it will not be but a couple more days until we can get to the store. Please considered bringing in your donation when we are able to reopen or ship it to us. Here is a list of items requested for donations: -Sleeves of Plastic Bags -Plastic Totes with Lids -Reusable Canvas Bags -Blankets -New Underwear and Socks (all sizes men, women, and children) - Coats and Clothes All Sizes (men, women, and children) -Snacks -Gas Cards
