Central Texas Wildfire Relief

 

At the end of the quilt drive 102 quilts were disributed wither directly to individuals who have lost their homes and to several area volunteer fire departments for their fundraisers for their equipment repair.  We will be distribute our last three (3) quilts on the first anniversary of the fires.  This will bring the total of 105 quilts made for this drive.  Awesome!!!    Thanks to everyone who participated in any way to make this happen.  Without you, it could not have been possible.  Thanks from us at Gerline's Quilt Shoppe and a HUGE thanks was received from every recipient of the quilts.

We have all been touched by the tragedy of the Central Texas Wildfires which began labor day weekend. Some of us have been affected a lot more than others and our hearts go out to every fire victim. All of us here at Gerline's Quilt Shoppe wants to help and as we are in the business of quilts, we have the following plan.

The donated blocks were sorted and made into quilts. These quilts were donated to fundraisers benefiting fire victims and area volunteer fire departments and the rest were given to families who lost their homes. .
