Next Stop Jordan for the Syrian Children

Recently Noreen Fling, QBB Regional Coordinator, and her husband, Rodger, delivered 87 quilts to Gleaning for the World warehouse in Virginia. Gleaning for the World (www.gftw.org) partners with IRD (International Relief & Development) and facilitates the delivery of the quilts. Their mission focuses on domestic relief and international humanitarian aid. Internationally, they work with other non-profits to meet the need for critical, life-saving supplies.

Noreen and Rodger were very impressed with the warehouse and the employees there. GFTW has already received over 200 quilts from QBB already. At this point, we believe all the quilts that we shipped or delivered to them are on their way to Jordan to the Syrian refugee children. The last photo is Noreen  and Mark O’Brien (warehouse manager).   Also note all the other items that the warehouse is delivering to various places.

QBB would like to thank all of you that helped us with this mission, to Noreen and Rodger for delivery, and thanks to Gleaning for the World and IRD for facilitating the delivery.  We know the children will love and appreciate these quilts.

      Thanks, Magdalen! We have several Regional Coordinators across the country who can accept your quilts. To locate the one closest to you, go to our blog page called “Where to Send Quilts and Tops” at this URL https://quiltsbeyondborders.wordpress.com/where-to-send-quilts-and-tops/ and click on the name of the Regional Coordinator who lives closest to you. Send her a note and she’ll respond with her address, or she’ll direct you to another RC who may be accepting Quilts or tops for a specific initiative. Thanks so much for your interest!
