Comfort makers

caring by hand

Comfort Makers help care for others by tying quilts, making blankets, mending bedding, and providing other garments for those in need of warmth, either physically or emotionally. Quilts made by these volunteers are donated to both local organizations and those overseas. All ages and skill levels are welcome in this group. The volunteers meet on the second Tuesday and fourth Thursday of each month from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the lower level of the church.
