ABC Quilts Distributes Over 20,000 Quilts to Distressed Infants and Children This Year
Northwood, NH (December 1, 2005) In 2005, ABC Quilts delivered over 20,000 hand-made quilts to abandoned, HIV-positive or alcohol or drug affected infants and children. Of this total, 1,568 were sent to infants and children affected by the Gulf Hurricanes.
"When responding to a local need or ongoing natural disasters, ABC Quilts relies upon its nationwide network of quilters and volunteers," explained ABC Quilts Executive Director Pam Weeks . "Quilts made locally are usually distributed locally. But the generous hands and hearts of the people throughout our national network also reached out to help children displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and orphaned by the Pakistani earthquakes. They are quite remarkable quilters."
