CVQG Community Service Projects
Nursing Home Quilts: For almost 20 years, our main community service project has been to make lap quilts for our local seniors. With well over a thousand quilts made, we hope to brighten their days and show them some CVQG love.
Quilts of Valor: Originally started to give quilts to wounded veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, the generosity of quilters has expanded its scope as a way to thank any veteran. CVQG is proud to be a part of this worthwhile project.
Quilted Stories: This project started in 2013 pairs children’s books with quilts that illustrate them. Plastic bins filled with a selection of books/quilts are distributed to 12 local schools and preschools and rotated regularly. Librarians and teachers can use these as an additional way to promote literacy while instilling a love for quilts.
St. Mark’s Donation Quilt: We are especially proud of our partnership with St. Mark’s. We have helped raise money yearly by providing a quilt for the St. Mark’s Foundation fundraiser.
Gardenia Janssen Animal Shelter Quilt: We provide a quilt yearly for this worthy organization also.
Texas Quilt Museum: We proudly support our museum financially as a Charter Guild. In addition, members act as docents and are an integral part of the team that changes out each exhibit.
