  1. Providence Passage Quilt Project’s mission provides comfort for dying patients and a keepsake for loving families and friends. It meets third Saturday of the month (except summer/holidays) and will provide kits, batting and fabrics. Contact person is Chaplain Sabine Maresco at 503-21505029 or Sabine.Maresco@providence.org.

    Providence NICU quilts cover the incubators softening the environment of the ICU. The quilt is given to the family if the baby goes home or if sadly the baby does not. No materials are provided. Hospital contact person is Carol Brandt at 503-574-7560. She accepts 42-45 inch, square, washed quilts.

    ‘Days for Girls’ empowers girls with more dignity and health through sustainable menstrual management. The organization has specific requirements and I would check the website http://www.daysforgirls.org. No materials are provided. This is not quilting but a small group of my quilting friends use our cotton scraps for the shields and pads.

      Thanks, Linda! These are all great. I’ll get them posted to the page today.

  2. Camp Erin Portland is an annual summer program for children age 6-17 who are grieving the death of someone close to them. Each camper is given a comfort quilt to take home after camp. I’ve separately emailed a flyer, with info for our Community Service page.
