Community Projects

While our guild is an educational non-profit, we are proud to be a part of several worthwhile charities and appreciate all the members who participate. The following are charities endorsed by our guild:

 

Salvation Army Dress A Bear Program    

The Guild will again participate in this program in 2015-16. Pictures below show bears dressed by guild members. They are given to children during the Christmas season through toyshop, hospital visitation, and homes in the Saginaw County area.

Comfort Quilts:

Quilts and joey bags for local charitable organizations such as the Rescue Mission, CAN Council (Child Abuse and Neglect Council) and others.

 

Military Quilts:

Piecemakers has made over 700 quilts for Operation First Response
The quilts requested are 36" x 36" for back pacs and 45" x 60" for wheel chairs.
Contact: Diane Jankowski (799-2197)

Over 40 quilts have been made from donated quilt blocks for signature quilts for the Saginaw VA Hospital Hospice Wing. These quilts have been given to patients and their families.

Quilts should be approximately 45" x 60" with some white blocks and borders for visitors to sign. This is a gentle way to let the family know who has visited. The Hospice Wing has one patriotic quilt hanging in their interview room as a sample to show the families when they come to set up a patient for the hospital.

Saginaw City Rescue Mission -- Cereal, other non-perisable items and/or monetary donations

All monies and materials for these charities are provided through donations; no money is taken from our treasury. All work is completed by volunteers. We take pride in the difference we can make in the lives of community members.
