Imagine the comfort that comes with a hug when someone is in a time of deepest need. Through a simple combination of fabric and thread, you can reach out to those with some of the greatest needs in the world – not wrapping them in your arms, but wrapping them in the work of your hands through an LWR quilt.
Most often, recipients use their LWR quilts to shield against the cold and rain, but their versatility also makes them useful as simple tents, floor coverings, or as a wrap to hold a baby in its mother's back.
In the 12 months ended September 30, 2014, the people of St. John's created and shipped 311 quilts to the LWR warehouse in New Windsor, Maryland.
You can be involved in the St. John's quilt ministry by helping construct the quilts, providing materials, or helping cover the shipment costs.
To participate in the quilting, check the calendar for LWR work dates.
