Fort McMurray Quilts
With the devastation in Fort McMurray in mind (we are sure that we all know of or have family or friends or acquaintances who have been affected by the fire) the executive decided to donate 10 children/baby quilts to the relief efforts to benefit Fort McMurray residentswho have been evacuated and who have lost practically everything.
This is a picture of one of the many trucks who drove donations from Chilliwack residents to Fort Mac.

Chilliwack Hospice Society would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the ongoing support received from the Chilliwack Quilter’s Guild and the Chilliwack Peacemaker’s Quilting Guild. In the past two months alone, over 40 quilts have been made and donated for use by our Cascade Hospice patients. Your generosity and dedication is greatly appreciated!
