Quilts for Hurricane Sandy Survivors

Quilts for Hurricane Sandy Survivors

By Janelle Cahoon, Quiltcentric

Since the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy, many quilters have been looking for ways to help.  This normal urge to give quilts to comfort and warm the survivors grows more urgent as the winter weather grows colder.

There are several groups collecting and donating quilts to the survivors of this storm.  Here are several that I’ve been able to find.

The eQuilter online fabric shop has made a goal to collect over 5,000 quilts of various sizes to send to the areas hardest-hit by the storm.  Visit the project’s information page here.

Bumble Beans, Inc. and Basic Housing, Inc, are collecting both homemade and store-bought quilts and blankets in any size.  They are also accepting tied comforters, which would make it quick and easy to finish up a few excess tops to send.  Visit their donation page here.

American Quilter’s Society is collecting quilts from twin to queen size in coordination with the Project Linus Blankie Depot in New Jersey.  See the information page here.

As always, if you’re interested in providing quilts through any of these groups, be sure to read their guidelines carefully before shipping.

 

If you know of any other organizations collecting quilts for survivors of Hurricane Sandy, please let me know and I’ll be happy to add  them to this list.  Thanks!
