On June 23, Cheryl Johnson, Anna DeGraff and Maureen Kelly drove to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles to deliver 159 quilts that were made by the wonderful ladies who comprise the Comfort Quilts group.

Comfort Quilts is a group of ladies that are part of the Tehachapi Mountain Quilters. These generous volunteers donate their time to make quilts to help others in need. Their quilts go to veterans, Hoffman Hospice, Shriners Hospital, those that are hospitalized or have perhaps lost a loved one and many others.

The group gets together once a month to sew and have a scrumptious pot luck lunch. The material for the quilts is donated by the community. If you would like to join, they would love to have you. Contact Maureen at (714) 308-6005, leave a message and you will receive a return call.

If you are unable to join the group and would like to help, they accept monetary donations to purchase batting and thread. Also, if you shop on Amazon you can designate Tehachapi Mountain Quilters as your charitable designee through the AmazonSmile program. There is also a list of items needed if you would like to check it out on Amazon, it will be under the Tehachapi Mountain Quilters wish list.
