Here is a note from Carol, one of the directors at MHC:
"From July 1 to August 1, 112 quilts were collected from our volunteer quilters around the country. Some participated in the quilt along through Crazy Mom Quilts--others just donated as they have in the past when their time and resources allowed.  All the quilts will be used for the mother-baby program at Pine Rest, at the 2 prison giveaways this fall, or for the mission trip to Guatemala in November.  Many quilters sent a thank-you note to us for allowing them to be a part of our mission. We say THANK YOU to all the friends across the country who were so generous to Margaret's Hope Chest this month.  We could not do what we set out to do without your help!"

If you missed the August 1st deadline, please know that MHC accepts donations at ANY time. They will use the quilts to continue to spread HOPE to those who are hurting and in need. Just last month, they donated their 2000th quilt!!! What an exciting milestone with a touching backstory.
