The Tanglethread Quilters have been selling raffle tickets on two lovely homemade quilts for the past month or so. The fabric and labor were donated by the women, so all the proceeds from ticket sales were able to go to the Heartland Food Bank. This morning at Coffee it was announced that the Quilters raised an amazing $877 for the cause!
The Quilters thank everyone who bought a strip of tickets. (The winners’ names were drawn at the Garage Sale last month, and were not available at press time. If you weren’t called, you didn’t win. Either.) Through your generosity many needy families will be able to enjoy a decent Christmas dinner, with enough food left over for more meals,
The grand total of all the fund raising activities for the Heartland Food Bank will be announced at a Monday Coffee soon. But we know it’ll be wonderful. Cash donations and checks made out to the Heartland Food Bank are still being accepted at Billie’s office or at Heather Paine’s house, 2610 Lazy Days Lane.
