Good Response to “Comforters for Ukraine” Project
By Maureen Scott
What a response to our article on April 29, 2022! The fabrics have been coming in, as have some monetary donations. Fabrics can still be dropped off at the donations bin at the Manitou Thrift Shop marked “fabric for Ukraine”.
This project will be ongoing past the summer and into the fall so keep the flow going. We are gladly accepting the challenge to create as many beautiful quilts as we can for the comfort of the Ukrainians.
So far we have had four work days at the Manitou Legion, with some volunteers coming from a distance - all putting in a great effort organizing, planning, cutting fabrics, sewing and making kits ready to be sewn together for these lovely comforters.
Those willing to sew at home can pick up kits at the Legion during our work days there from 9 - 4. Anyone wanting to join us is welcome. Next work days are Monday and Tuesday, May 30 and 31.
For more information, contact any committee member - Maureen Scott (204-242-4049), Delores Christoff (204-242-2410), Gloria Johnston (204-242-2423), or Nancy Pauls (204-242-2074).
One contributor has expressed the feeling that “she was blessed more in the giving than those that were receiving”. This is the way we are all feeling. We thank each and everyone of you for your contributions to date.
