I’ve received many emails from HeartStrings quilters (and others who have visited our blog) who are sending quilts to Kansas for people affected by the recent tornado in Greensburg.
I’ve counted at least 40 quilts that have already been sent (or will be soon) as the result of the HeartStrings Quilt Project effort as well as at least another handful of tops that are being mailed out for quilting and will be sent as soon as they are finished.
Although I’ve received several emails from groups asking us to join their efforts and send quilts to them for Kansas, I think it’s important to continue to focus on our local donations as well as sending quilts for special circumstances such as the Kansas tornado. I have responded to those requests with the following information:
We’re a group that makes and donates quilts to local organizations. Because our members wanted to make donations for Greensburg, we contacted a local church and about 40 quilts have been sent with at least several more to follow once they are quilted.
We have chosen to contact a local church and send quilts directly there. You can read more about our efforts at our blog .
Good luck with your efforts,
HeartStrings Quilt Project
For those of you still working on finishing quilts that you want to send to Kansas, I suggest you send them directly to the church contacted by Sue.
