A Dedication to Serving the Community
Our Guild presently supports 4 Community Service sites: Truman Medical Center Newborn Nursery, Ozanam Residential Teen Center, Hillside Nursing home in Desoto, KS and Sunflower House.
Our Guild creates twin size quilts for this long-term residential home for teens with emotional, behavioral, or learning problems, and their families. With a bed capacity of 75, residents get to use and keep their quilt when they transition out of the home. Our Guild is committed to providing all residents with a beautiful quilt they will cherish for years to come. For more information go the Ozanam website at http://l.web.umkc.edu/lg7e4/ozanam/homepage.html
In September, 2018, 17 twin size quilts were delivered for the residents.
Truman Medical Center Nursery
The guild contributes baby quilts to the newborn nursery. They are dispensed to patients by the nursing staff.
In September 2018, 17 crib quilts and 11 baby afghans were delivered to Truman hospital. Every mom receives a hat, mittens, t- shirt, sleep gown, and receiving blanket for their baby. After seeing first hand the needs of the moms and babies, it reaffirms that this is a great place to donate our special baby quilts!
In July 2018, 11 Crib quilts were delivered.
