night, three fire fighters died fighting the wildfires in central
Washington, four others are in the hospital and one of those is in
the Chelan area are losing their homes and there appears to be no end to
the high winds that are kicking up in that area as well as prediction
of lightening this week-end.
County is literally on fire and the towns of Twisp and Winthrop have
been evacuated, it is devastating as these fires get whipped
hopscotching across roads, fields and mountains.
you help me deliver over 400 quilts to the Oso landslide victims. We
also delivered over 200 to this area that was hit with fires as well,
but nothing like now!
just sent me a note...'I am so sorry to be talking to you again, can we
count on your organization to help again this year, I will contact you
need is greater this year. Read below and if you can help, please send
the quilts to me. I am praying for an October delivery for first drop
1- Twin and Full sized quilts
2- Toddler Sized quilts
3- Knit or Crochet caps
understand, I CANNOT accept clothing, shoes, etc. I am not a drop off
facility, I am a one person organization that accepts quilts that all of
you amazing quilters send and then I deliver them.
this time or until further notice, PLEASE NO BABY quilts, I am overrun
with them and our need is not for infant quilts but adults more than
blankets, caps all must be handmade and as brand new as possible, (i.e.
if you made one years ago and it has never been used, by all means send
it. If it has been on grannies nursing home bed and is torn, has blood
stains, holes, smells...keep it as these people do not want our
year I received clothing I had to donate to charity, I received quilts
that were torn, had droplets of blood, holes, smelled like cigarettes,
etc. Those I tried to wash and donate, several were trashed.
kind, think of how you would feel if you lost everything and someone
brings you a stinky quilt that has blood on it. Ewwww, gross and not
going to happen!
share our need with your church, friends, quilt shops, yarn shops,
crochet and knitting friends, help us spread the word.
