Holiday Quilt Delivery to Navajo Nation

An Arizona angel named Marsha delivered 500 quilts from Quilts Beyond Borders (QBB) to the Navajo nation in northern Arizona in late December 2017.  Marsha received boxes and boxes of QBB quilts and stored them in her friend’s living room until she and her elves could take two weeks to visit children and seniors in their schools, communities and private homes, planning her visits to coincide with holiday parties at Chapter Houses and Senior Centers. She appreciates Quilts Beyond Borders and said “the quilts for the children and elderly bring such happiness and hope” as well as provide a warm blanket for the cold Navajo reservation nights.  As she shared these quilt blessings, she said “We saw so many happy children and elderlies”.

This is the 5th year we have been distributing quilts with help from Marsha of Forgotten People. Please enjoy some photos below!
