Storm Relief – Help Is Needed

eQuilter Quilt Relief


Luana Rubin,
of eQuilter.com, and Timeless Treasures are teaming up to organize storm relief.

eQuilter.com is known for its work helping others and has raised over $1 million for charity over the years, as well as coordinating donations and delivering many thousands of comfort quilts for 9/11, Katrina, Haiti and Japan tsunami survivors. Now they are helping those devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

If you would like to help by donating quilts, click here for the eQuilter Quilt Relief page for all of the necessary details: what is needed; quilt sizes; free patterns; where to send your quilts, and more.

 

Project Linus is also providing storm relief.

Hillary Roberts, president of Project Linus NJ, Inc., is ready to receive and distribute quilts through the New Jersey National Guard and others who will distribute quilts to those in need. “The need is great and with cold weather and holidays approaching, requests will be greater than usual. Given the time of year, the heavier the quilt, the better.”

Please use the following guidelines:

Quilts should be twin to queen sizes.
Include your contact information (name, address, phone and/or email.) Project Linus will try to let you know where your quilt is heading.
Quilts should be machine washed and wrapped to protect them in transport.

Send them to:

Hillary Roberts, President
Project Linus NJ, Inc.
79 Jackson Street
Keyport, NJ 07735

If you have questions, email Hillary at director@blankiedepo.org or blankiedepo@aol.com. You can also visit the Project Linus Blankie Depot.

You can also contact your local Project Linus Chapter for information and drop-off locations.
