Donation Quilts Needed for Colorado Flood Victims

Donation Quilts Needed for Colorado Flood Victims

By Janelle Cahoon, Quiltcentric

If you’ve been wondering how to donate a quilt to help and comfort those affected by the recent flooding in Colorado, you’ll be glad to know that the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum has announced that it will be accepting and distributing quilts for the flood victims beginning immediately and continuing until April 30, 2014.

“Even though many of us can’t physically help the nearly 1,800 Colorado families whose homes have been destroyed or the 17,500 whose homes have been damaged by the recent flooding,” said RMQM Executive Director Karen Roxburgh, “Quilters can provide some comfort to those in need with the gift of a homemade quilt.”

In this effort, called “Cover Colorado,” the museum is asking for donations of new quilts, made of 1000% cotton, in crib, throw, twin, full and queen sizes only.

Donation quilts can be delivered to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, 1213 Washington Avenue, Golden, CO 80401, or to the museum office at 651 Corporate Circle, Suite 102, Golden, CO 80401.  If you’re able to drop them off in person, do so during business hours (for the museum, Mon.-Sat. 10-4 and Sun. 11-4 and for the museum office on Corporate Circle, it would be Mon.-Thurs. 9:30-4.)  Visit the museum’s website here to see the “Cover Colorado” project announcement.

Quilters are caring and giving people, and a huge number of people have lost their homes and possessions to this flooding.  Let’s all see what we can do to help.
