Who we are and What we do
There are few things more comforting than being wrapped in your own handmade quilt. The primary purpose of Quilts from Caring Hands is to bring this feeling of loving comfort to at-risk children in Oregon’s Benton, Linn and Marion counties. These include those who are homeless, drug addicted, visually impaired, or abused, and those in foster care. Our quilts are distributed through designated social service agencies.
Each quilt we make for a child is unique. In addition to crib- and twin-sized quilts, we also assemble tactile quilts and “cuddlers” for visually impaired children. The finished quilts and cuddlers are given away once each quarter.
QCH is grateful to our sponsors for their support over the years. Quilts from Caring Hands is a volunteer-powered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
