Vermilion Quilt Guild Christmas Pillowcase Project
Are you looking to help spread a little cheer this year? if so, The Vermilion Quilt Guild is holding a Christmas Pillowcase Project designed to help bring cheer and enjoyment to others this holiday season.
The Quilt Guild members have sewn 180 beautiful pillowcases to be distributed to residents residing in the Vermilion Long Term Care, Supportive Housing, the Lodge and Focus Vermilion.
The members of the Guild are hoping to raise $25 per pillowcase for a total of $4500 so they can fill the cases with essential everyday items such as unscented lotion, shampoo, deodorant, denture cleaner and brush, and nail trimmers as well as a special Christmas related item and a pair of bed socks. FOCUS Vermilion would like to receive Christmas Crackers in their pillowcases as a special Christmas item.
“Long’s Value Drug Mart has sourced most of the products that we will need and if you would like to donate to this Christmas project you can make cheques out to the Guild or to me, or you can put money on account at Long’s Value Drug Mart at the front check out (it can be cash, debit or credit) or you can etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org (no password necessary, auto deposit) or you can make a donation to any of the guild members,” explained Project manager Barb Knauft.
The pillowcases will be assembled on December 17th and the Sheriff’s will be delivering the pillowcases the week before Christmas so if you would like to participate in this special project please bring your monetary donations to Long’s or a Guild member as soon as possible.
