TOWNSEND — It is always sad to know that there are children with life-threatening illnesses. The Quazy Quilters, who meet Tuesdays at the Townsend Senior Center, are doing their best to keep those children happy and smiling.
Since June this group of women, who meet weekly, have created and donated over 35 quilts and matching pillowcases to be given out to the children at Paul Newman’s Camp Hole in the Wall Gang in Connecticut.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families, free of charge. “We are a community that celebrates the spirit of childhood, the sound of laughter and the feeling of endless possibility,” stated on their website.
And their kindness does not stop there.
Last year the Quazy Quilters raffled off two quilts and raised $3,000 to donate to Ukraine. They also made 80 flannel blankets to go to the “Dress a Girl Around the World” program, where dedicated volunteers throughout the United States and around the world gather to sew and distribute dresses to girls in need around the world “because we believe that every girl deserves at least one dress,” as stated on their website.
The material is purchased by the quilters, some is donated to the group. To learn more about the Quazy Quilters, please contact the Townsend Senior Center at 978-597-1710.
