Donate Quilts to Quilts for Kids to Help Children in Oklahoma

When disasters occur and we all wish to hide under a cover from the worry, fear and heartache, that’s when Quilts For Kids, Inc. comes to help.

We have all seen the news reels on the recent tornado activity that has devastated Moore Oklahoma and its neighboring counties.  When an elementary school collapses the first thing we do is cry for the children.  We often feel helpless and wish we could do something.

Quilts For Kids does just that.

They rally their forces of volunteers and donate their works of beauty – in this case to children who have lost everything.

There is no favorite stuffed animal – no grandma’s handmade quilt to sleep under – in fact no bed to sleep on!

What they will have is a patchwork quilt that will enable them to have companionship and cuddling.

Linda Arye, Founder and President is working directly with the DHS (department of Human Services) in Oklahoma.

Through a partnership with P&G and the Downy Touch of Comfort Program 1,300 quilts are getting into the hands of the childrenwho have been injured and are in the hospitals there.  The charity has many connections and is using them to make certain your quilts get to where they belong.

A child is waiting for a hug from you – Please send a quilt –it’s the next best thing!

Please consider making quilts (lap or crib size is fine) and donating them to:
Quilts For Kids, Inc.

      Thank you so much.
      So many new tornados mean more children than ever need quilts to hold onto when they have nothing left.
      I am touched by the generosity of those creating beautiful quilts for us to get into the arms of these children!

    Can we make rag quilts?

    • Linda Arye says:

      Send what you have and we will get them to the children. Normally we don’t do rag quilts for the hospitalized kids due to breathing issues ….but these are going to more than hospitalized kids.
      Many thanks for your kindness and your quilts!
