Coachella Valley Quilt Guild members create and donate quilts to various charity organizations throughout the Coachella Valley. In 2016, 555 quilts were donated to deserving charities. The goal is to provide quality quilts annually to organizations in need. You too can help the guild achieve our goal! For additional information on how, contact the committee at the above email link.
The Philanthropy Committee selected the charity organizations listed below to receive philanthropy quilts made by CVQG members. Donations for these organizations will be accepted at the monthly guild meetings and will be distributed as the need arises.
On December 1 Pene Owens, our Philanthropy Chair made her last drop off at Pegasus Therapeutic Riding, one of a handful of organizations our quilts go to. Pene is seen here in photographs handing over quilts to Pegasus Chief Operations Officer, Chase Berke. Many of these horse themed quilts were made by, Quilting For Kids. During Pene's two year stint in Philanthropy over 800 quilts have been given out. Pene is quick to point out those numbers would have never happened if it were not for the friendship groups and dedicated members of our guild. Thank you Pene for all the hours you have given and your dedication !
