Pillowcases for Charity

I've probably mentioned it before, but our local quilt guild supports 3 major charities.  I try to do a little bit for each one (generally just concentrating on one each month).  This month, there was a challenge for items needed for the Genesis House, a local women & children's shelter.


I made and donated 5 pillowcases in the month of April to the shelter.  These are an item that is very much needed.  Many of the residents of the shelters come with little or nothing.  When they leave, they can take the pillowcases with them and in many cases they are used as a "travel bag" to carry anything else they may need to take with them.
