Donate your gently used blankets. (For quilt fillers)
Your congregation’s Quilt & Kit ministry is run on a lot of love, and a lot of thrifting! If you have gently used blankets, they can be re-purposed as warm filler for the quilts your group makes.
Be sure to check with your group leader or coordinator before bringing in blankets to make sure you are donating when they are needed.
Send 16 Mission Quilts in honor of your congregation's quilting group.
By sending 16 Mission Quilts through the LWR Gifts online catalog, you help ensure your quilters' gifts of love reach the hands of the people who desperately need them.
In addition to sending the quilts, you can also send an instant e-card through the LWR Gifts site to the leader of your quilting group with a message of appreciation to share!
Help get quilts to the LWR warehouse or local Ingathering.
Once your quilting group's quilts are finished, they are sent to Lutheran World Relief, either by dropping them off at one of our two warehouses, or by participating in a regional Ingathering.
Offer to help transport quilts when the time comes to donate!
Make a special treat and bring it to the next quilting session.
Many quilters share coffee and a snack when they gather. Consider making a special treat for your quilters next gathering. Pro-Tip: Make something that is deeply meaningful to you, and stick around to tell your group about it (and … help!). The best gifts are ones from the heart. (Need a recipe idea? We've got you covered with Jan's bundt cake recipe, pictured.)
Give a gift to the LWR Quilt & Kit Shipping Fund in their honor.
Much like sending 16 Mission Quilts, giving a gift to the LWR Quilt & Kit Shipping Fund is a way to ensure your quilters' work gets to the people who need it most. Gifts can be made of any size. In fact, if you get others to join you, your gift of $500 can commemorate your group with a brick at LWR's Quilt Plaza in Baltimore, Maryland.
