Bennett Freeze 2016

We had a wonderful result with our Bennett Freeze Forgotten People initiative last year.  Once so many of you sent your quilts, the work began in Arizona.  Many volunteers helped sort and distribute quilts to quite a few happy recipients. They gave away quilts all during the month of December to several different groups. Women’s shelters, senior citizen centers, and families with young children were all visited and given the warmth and love of one of your quilts.Our contact person sent me an email the beginning of January saying that there were a few people who walked away empty handed from the last giveaway they had 😦 and she asked if I had a couple dozen more to send. Since the generosity of all of you is so amazing, I was able to do that quickly so we sent well over 200 quilts this year! One thing she mentioned was that these quilts truly let these folks know that they are not forgotten and that they are loved. She tried to capture that in these pictures and it’s fun to see the different expressions.
