In May there is a ceremony honoring the sacrifices of firefighters in North Carolina (True Heros!). You can donate a quilt to a family.
Quilts can be mailed to Sunshine Courage Quilts, 200 N. King St., Morganton, NC 28655. We collect quilts throughout the year and distribute in May at the state ceremony for fallen firefighters. Our quilts are usually 50 x 70. We are able to provide fabric if folks need it.
Or, contact me, Guild member Greg Woods and I will deliver.
