Sue called the Haviland Church today where we’ve been sending quilts for those affected by the Kansas tornado in Greensburg and wrote:
“I spoke to another person at the church in Kansas (Jeanne was not there when I called). The quilts have been arriving and they are being used! Jeanne has been handing them out herself.
The shelter has been closed – all the residents have moved in with relatives or been located to hotels and such and the FEMA trailers are starting to arrive.
Jeanne will hand out any more quilts as people get settled and the need arrives . If you are still planning on sending a quilt she will find a home for it . Otherwise we can start stockpiling quilts for the next event where a group donation would be helpful.
She gave a big THANK YOU to everyone that helped and everyone that prayed for the people affected by the tornado .
For anyone who would still like to send completed quilts to Kansas, the address and contact information can be found by clicking this link.
Thank you all who contributed both HeartStrings and other quilts (and the HeartStrings blocks they were made from) that were sent to Kansas.
