More Quilts for Jeremiah’s Letter, Inc.

March 10, 2017

Last fall we sent quilts to Jeremiah’s Letter, Inc. (see blog post from September) in Dayton, OH.   As a reminder,  Jeremiah’s Letter shares services and goods with its guests in the inner city of Dayton Ohio, including household goods such as quilts and kitchenware, clothing, two hot meals a week, and assistance in obtaining certified copies of birth certificates. Many of the individuals who are helped are children who live in very challenging environments.   Since the last supply of quilts we sent was low, we were asked to send some more.  They never know when a child will need a quilt so it is good to have some on hand.

From our Regional Coordinator, Noreen Fling in NC, she sent the following quilts that were made by Barbara Fyffe and Audrey Murphey.

This time we were asked to send larger quilts for some of the older children.   QBB continues to ask for quilts for small children (cot sized, 42 x 48-60”) and baby sized (36 x 36” – 45 x 45”) for the little ones in the refugee camps (since we send to the Syrian refugees on a regular basis) but every once in a while we receive a larger quilt, so we wait for just the right call.
Thanks to all of our volunteers for brightening the day of a child.
Regards, Noreen & Karen
