Sallie House 2019 - Distribution Day
"Watching the children thoughtfully choose their quilts filled our hearts with joy. Most immediately wrapped themselves up in their quilt."
125 quilts were donated this year that will go to each child entering Sallie House. For more information check out children's services of the Salvation Army.
Our charity quilt for 2019 that hung at QuiltCon in Nashville, TN has been donated to SelahFreedom for their auction/raffle event. For more information on this foundation click here.

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. Extra quilts are available so each incoming child during the year can select a quilt to keep.

Each 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
