Call for Quilts - Davies Homeless Shelter

I have never posted anything like this before, so I am a little nervous. I certainly don't intend to offend anyone, but I do know that quilters are a very generous bunch and often look for opportunities to share.



I am on the board of the William S. Davies Homeless Shelter, located in Rome, GA. Until now, we have operated out of rented spaces. Last year we started an incredible journey of building our own building. This building is designed to house 16 men and will be opening in August/September. We will have 16 beds for men who are homeless and transitioning in life. I think that homemade quilts would go a long way to make their environment feel like a home.

I would like to request twin size quilts for the beds. The beds are 80" long. Please consider making one and donating. They are all men's beds, so colors should be masculine. Please let me know if you can do one. You can e-mail me directly at: michele.hester@gmail.com


The Shelter is not a permanent home, but a transitional home, while these men get the things in place to move into their own housing. Please visit our website to learn more about what we do for these men:: http://daviesshelter.com/ We are a 501(c)3 and donations are tax deductible.
