COMFORT QUILTS IN HIGH DEMANDby Tricia Degan
The comfort of a quilt can not only keep us warm, but it may also bring back fond memories of days gone by, or admiring thoughts of the person who crafted it for us. We know someone put many hours into sewing it for us and can appreciate their gifted skills. Niagara Hospice is fortunate to have gifted volunteers who craft quilts for hospice patients. However, more volunteers and quilts are needed. Niagara Hospice volunteers ask that any quilters in the community please consider joining their cause to ensure each patient receiving Niagara Hospice services receives a handmade quilt.
Quilts are needed for men, women and veterans. They should be 40" by 40" and made of fabric that is 100% cotton. Interested quilters are asked to contact Niagara Hospice volunteer Bernadette Ford at (716) 213-7480 to arrange pick-up or for more information.
Niagara Hospice has provided end-of-life comfort, care and support since 1988 to over 16,000 Niagara County individuals and families faced with terminal illness. No one is ever denied hospice care due to ability to pay. For more information, visit NiagaraHospice.org or call Hospice at 716-439-4417.
