Each year our guild chooses a charity, which primarily supports women or children. We have made quilts for the My Sister's House, Ronald McDonald House, Cancer Survivor bags and pillows, ABC Baby Quilts, Charleston Animal Society, Quilted EmBrace and much more!

In 2019 we are supporting TWO worthy organizations.

Royal Family Kids Camp – Community Outreach Program #1

Royal Family Kids Campfor Royal Family Kids’ Camp for abused, abandoned and neglected children in the foster care system.  This is a one-week residential foster-child camp that is offered free to the campers aged seven to eleven years of age.  This year is the 10th year for local camp.  Children receive a quilt approximately 50" by 60" that will have their name on it and placed on their beds to welcome them to camp.  They then take the quilt home as a lasting reminder of one week where they got to be kids in a safe environment. Quilts for this project are a minimum of “50 x 60" throw size, and please make them masculine or gender-neutral.  Here is the link to see the quilts that are ready for this year's camp:  https://summerville.royalfamilykids.org/quilts/

Doors to Freedom – Community Outreach Program #2

DDoors to Freedomoors to Freedom is a local non-profit organization that provides a safe haven and support for young girls ages 12 to 21  who are rescued from human traffickers.  We will be making quilts for these young girls and women to have for their own.   In a state of more than 5 million residents, there is only one full-time home for trafficking victims: Doors to Freedom.  Post and Courier article about Sex Trafficking in SC:  https://www.postandcourier.com/news/fight-against-modern-day-slavery-of-human-trafficking-in-south/article_7a04961a-47f4-11e8-bc3f-8f4c698be9f5.html
Guild members can support in many ways!  Here is the place for our creativity to shine!   At this time each bed in the center has a twin size quilt now (which will stay at the center).  We hope to provide each of the  girls a throw-size quilt  ( same dimensions as the foster children's camp, at least 50" by 60") which they will take with them when they leave.
