Sallie HouseEach year the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild chooses a community outreach to receive quilts lovingly made by our members. Sallie House under the Salvation Army is a perfect match. We have donated over 50 quilts so that each child arriving will be able to choose their own to keep forever. This project is extended for another year.
"The Sallie House Program is designed to be a safe haven for children ages birth to seventeen years who have been removed from their home because of abuse, neglect, abandonment or any situation that causes the home to be unsafe for the child."Children may stay at Sallie House from one night to one year depending on whether they can be reunified with their parents, placed with relatives, placed in a foster home or adopted by a loving family. More information is on their website at Sallie House
On the Dec 2018 Distribution Day 38 children selected a quilt and immediately wrapped it around themselves. It is always amazing how quickly they select their quilt, whether its the color or texture, each knows the one for them.
