~ Community Service ~

A very important part of what we do is contribute to our community and its residents through these and other projects.

Festival of Trees Comfort Quilts

Appreciating our Veterans

 

 

Floyd Zorens, Veteran WWII
  Each year the guild decorates a tree for Tri-State Hospital Foundation's "Festival of Trees" fund raiser for various extras at the hospital.  Members make hand-stitched decorations, quilts, and accessories to decorate the tree which is then sold at auction, earning funds for hospital projects. 
  
   As a service to the community members make comfort quilts and lap-blankets with materials provided by, or donated to, the guild.  The comfort quilts are given to the Red Cross, battered women's shelter, crisis nursery and Lewiston and Clarkston police and fire departments to give to families and children in time of crisis.         Seaport Quilters provide over 100 quilts per year to the valley for this cause.  The lap-blankets are made for residents of area nursing homes for when they are in their chairs to keep them warm and comfortable. Quilts of Valor has become a national grassroots community service effort, connecting the home-front with our veterans.  QOV’s are stitched with love, prayers and healing thoughts. Combat troops who have been wounded or touched by war are awarded this tangible token of appreciation that unequivocally says, “Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor.”
