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 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. 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 showcased in local area business throughout 2018, and then 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 their quilts
• Assist in the cost of quilting supplies if a quilter is unable to afford the quilting materials.
• Partner with Cary Quilting Company who will provide a 10% discount on quilting supplies. They are located at 935 N Harrison Ave in Cary. https://www.caryquilting.com/
• Acknowledged 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!
