Our Success is Your Success Too!
Updated: Jan 9, 2019
As 2018 has ended, we are overwhelmed by gratitude for everyone who has helped make the Salt Lake Chapter of Quilts for Kids such a huge success. Countless hours have been donated by amazing volunteers over the last 12 months and all for kids in great need of love and comfort.
It is hard to put into words the impact one quilt can have on a life. Every cut, every creative thought, every quilt top, all the binding, the final stitches ... all of it matters from quilt one to quilt 1,235. Yes! that is how many were donated in 2018. This is why all our volunteers mean the world to us. We could not have reached so many children without you. THANK YOU!
With so many wonderful volunteers, we cannot begin to individually thank everyone enough, but we would be remiss in not recognizing just a few of our volunteer all-stars and groups. These individuals and groups have a deep passion for Quilts for Kids and have dedicated incredible amounts of time and resources this past year. Our special thanks to Charlotte, Debbie, Nina, Kathy, Chris, Mary, Suzanne, Eagle Gaters, Gateway Women, Brigham Volunteers, Crystal and the Tooele County Quilters, Jerie (Quilter Extraordinaire), and the SOS Women's Groups. You ALL go above and beyond the call of volunteer, and our entire team wishes to say THANK YOU!
We could not do what we do without the tremendous support of our retail partners: Nuttall's Sewing Centers, The Quilter's Lodge, Elaine's Quilt Block, Quilt, Etc., Quilts on a Corner, Floyd & Lizzie's, Heartfelt Hobby & Craft, the West Jordan Senior Center. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for hosting workshops and special events throughout the year to support Quilts for Kids. Your open doors, your supplies, your fabric - all of it has been a blessing to us, but an even bigger blessing to the children receiving quilts of love.
Last, but certainly not least, thank you to the Quilts for Kids Board Members. This awesome group of ladies manages all the behind the scenes details to help Quilts for Kids run seamlessly. They staff events, cut and put together quilt kits, source fabric, secure event spaces, recruit new volunteers, etc. They do it all for the joy these quilts bring to the children. Thank you for your leadership and dedication!
We eagerly await the joy of your success in 2019. With all our hearts, THANK YOU
