STITCHING TOGETHER A COMMUNITY – 50 Years of Service
Calling All Quilters – Dorcas Ministries Needs You!
We are looking for Quilters to be a part of our 50th Anniversary:
Dorcas Ministries will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018 and the celebration theme is STITCHING TOGETHER A COMMUNITY – 50 Years of Service. Dorcas is named after a woman from the Bible who made garments for the poor and became notable for her charitable work. (Acts 9:36-42). Today, Dorcas Ministries provides crisis relief to western Wake County residents who seek stability and sufficiency through food and financial aid, scholarships, training programs, referrals and an affordable thrift shop.
As a part of our celebration, we are looking for volunteer quilters, to sew a quilt inspired by our 50 years of service to the community. We are asking quilters to donate their quilts to Dorcas that will be auctioned off at our commemorative event in November 2018. The funds raised will support our outreach services.
To support our effort, Dorcas Ministries will:
• Provide sketches, pictures and themes to assist in the creation of quilts
• Assist in the cost of quilting supplies if a quilter is unable to afford the quilting materials.
• Cary Quilting Company will provide a 10% discount on quilting supplies for Dorcas Quilts. Please see Ellen Frazier at Dorcas Ministries or email Bob Stapleton at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your 10% discount coupon.
• Acknowledge quilters for their gift of time and talent at our commemorative event.
Thank you for considering being a Dorcas Quilter Volunteer to celebrate our 50th year!
