For several years, Quilts Beyond Borders has supported the Navajo Nation by supplying quilts to kids and elderly in nursing homes near the Big Mountain area of the Nation. QBB is fortunate to have a contact with an organization called the Forgotten People. Forgotten People is a non-profit community-based organization dedicated to improving the well-being of the Dine (Navajo) people who live on the Navajo Nation in Arizona. QBB has a contact with Forgotten People, Marsha, who is instrumental in transporting the quilts and ensuring quilt distribution. In our next post, we will share photos of some of these distributions, stay tuned!

Quilters, you are so appreciated for your generosity in supplying quilts to Quilts Beyond Borders for all initiatives. Thank you for all you do!
– QBB, Arizona Regional Coordinator
