From the Northwest and Beyond – Quilts for Afghan Refugees in Salem OR

The first Afghan Refugees arrived in Oregon this January and we were happy to provide 25 quilts to Salem for Refugees. Located in our state’s capital this group helps refugees with housing, household items and adjusting to life in the U.S..  The quilts below were given to children when they went to their new homes. The reports from the staff were that children loved the quilts and so did the parents! 

Thank you to the quilters who helped bring joy to children in their new homes with the comfort of a quilt!  You can click on each picture to see who made each quilt.
