Comfort Covers Collection Report

    On a rainy Saturday a hardy core of volunteers gathered to size, label, sort and deliver the donations inside Centre County. WendyN, BeckyS, BeckyT, JillA, PeggyT, and Pat worked hard. Pat went home to get a second iron, and Lenore went home to make more labels. We were out of the building by 11:30

    Thank you to those who made donations since the last collection day in July. Without your ongoing support for this guild project, we would not be able to continue this mission. LenoreC is the coordinator for Comfort Covers. It would be impossible for her to make all these lovely covers.

    We are delivering this week 14 bed toppers, 17 lap blankets, 16 small lap, 31 walker/wheelchair bags, 21 fabric dignity protectors, 17 dress shirt dignity protectors, 28 covers for Toys for Tots, 5 hats, and 4 items to the House of Hope Mommy Shop. Our destinations include 7 senior care facilities, Out of the Cold (un-housed) , The Haven (teens), The Meadows (psych hospital), and Park Forest Nursery School.  That's over 150 people receiving something to bring them comfort, and maybe a little joy.
