Earthquake, tsunami, radiation, and now…
record cold temperatures and snow.
Utah Friends and family:
The LDS Church Humanitarian Center has put out an “immediate need” request for twin and full sized quilts to help those suffering in the aftermath of the disaster and now extreme temperatures.
In an effort to aid those suffering in Japan, we have scheduled a Orem church building this Saturday to tie quilts–as many quilts as possible. If you have any time at all this Saturday, please consider coming–even for an hour.
If you have flannel, fleece, sheets, yarn, or batting, that you’re willing to donate–it would help so much. We will also have a giveaway there as an added incentive–as if the cookies and good “servicey” feelings aren’t enough! :}
Those who live outside Utah, I know you can’t come, but could you pass this to anyone who would be willing to help in UT?
Saturday, March 19th
8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
1075 W 1100 N (church building)
Please pass this on to anyone you can~friends, family, coworkers, etc.
If you know quilt or fabric shop owners (or avid quilters with a huge stash!) who would be willing to donate fabric or batting, please ask them.
This is obviously short notice, but also an easy thing we can do to give service and help our sweet brothers and sisters in devastated Japan. This would be a great opportunity to teach older children about the power of timely service–even when it might be a little inconvenient.
