Community Service

EBHQ members are generous by nature and have a long history of supporting our community at large.  The Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project (previously Children's Quilt Project) volunteers donate over 1,000 quilts a year to local children and youth organizations, shelters and hospitals.  DDQCP volunteers have also stitched larger quilts to comfort communities affected by wildfires and other natural disasters.  Individual members often make beautiful raffle quilts for fund raising efforts in local schools and organizations.  Members of all skill levels are welcome to join us at DDCQP.

2015 Lake County Fire:

The guild had a wonderful time September 19 at Drop-in working on quilts for the folks of Lake County.   The next day we were able to send 30 adult and 30 child size quilts to the victims of the valley fire with the Alameda County Reserve Firefighters.

Special thanks to Carolyn Weil, Susan Dague, Marcia Alpert, and Jean Wolslegel for putting this work day together on such short notice, and to all who helped on Saturday.
