Our Quiltsy Cares donation for today is Lauren Kreuger of CactusPenguin. Lauren lives in Sun Lakes, Arizona.
Lauren donated three quilts to azblankets4kids. Arizona Blankets for Kids is special because all the donations stay in Arizona, and all benefit children who are in low income families where many of their basic needs go unmet. Blanket4Kids provides a service that"stands in the gap" for struggling families. Over 100,000 items have been donated in their 17 year history.
Due to the flexibility of blankets or quilts, they can be used for sleeping, cuddling or traveling. All blankets are rolled and stuffed with a crocheted hat, scarf and stuffed animal!
