Our chosen charities for 2014 were:
Quarter 1: ALS Association
This PMQG charity drive has ended, if you still would like to donate please follow the link.
Quarter 2: Camp Erin, a camp for grieving children. When the campers arrive, they are greeted with a teddy bear and a quilt on their bunks. Quilts for camp Erin should be minimum 50"x 60" and be child appropriate in theme and fabric. Campers are aged 8-18 and the camp often has a special need for quilts that may appeal to boys, espcially teen boys. Join a PMQG Charity Day, or bring finished quilts or blocks to any meeting or PMQG event to help with this charity. We will be doing a large quilt drive at our July meeting. Bring finished quilts to the July meeting to present to representatives from Camp Erin.
Quarter 3: Raphael House

Quarter 4: Project Linus
