Habitat for Humanity:
As an outreach to our community the women of LWML donate several of the tied quilts to Habitat for Humanity. When the Habitat house is finished and the new homeowners are given the keys to their new home it is a huge and wonderful day for them.
At the dedication of their house the donated quilts are first given to the adult homeowners then to each of the children, no matter how many or what their ages, they are given to everyone who will be residing in the new home.
We've been doing this for several years now, however, it has just been during the past couple years or so, that we've started giving a quilt to each child. There are ten or more organizations that give the homeowners gifts that apply to the whole family but we're the only ones who give an individual gift to each child. The children always enjoy getting a gift that's especially for them!!! Habitat is a wonderful Christian organization that does a lot of good for good people. We're proud and honored to be a small part of it.
