- Projects for 2010 - 2011 “Talent, Treasure, Time”
We have made a difference in the lives of battered women, the elderly, and children at risk with the used cell phones we collected.
We emptied our pockets, coin purses, and even cleaned out the coins stuck between our cushions to raise nearly $500 for “Hope House,” giving orphaned children in Uganda, Africa the chance to improve their lives.
We made over 100 pillowcases for Children’s Hospital’s new wing with the guidance of, and in honor of ConKerr Cancer Los Angeles.
We collected over 50 dresses made with pillowcases to Dress a Girl Around the World and added approximately 20 prayer dolls with this donation. HOPE 4 WOMEN INTERNATIONAL will be very pleased with our efforts and donations.
We collected for the holidays, 30 backpacks filled with supplies and clothing for emergency placement foster children. Gift cards were also collected to help buy diapers and other needed supplies. This sure made a difference in the lives of the children at risk from the South Bay Dept. of Children Services.
We made the lives of cancer battling patients at St. John’s Hospital a bit more comfortable with beautiful PAT OF LOVE QUILTS.
We, all of SMQG, made a difference in so many lives. We are proud to have been a part of the history of what SMQG stands for.
