Vince and I met up with our delivery contact this morning and they now have the quilts.
They are going with a load of diapers, baby wipes, personal hygiene items and I forgot what all else they had on this load.
They were very happy to have our quilts to add to the items they’re going to be sharing. The folks said they felt the Shawnee area had been a bit forgotten with most of the news coverage on Moore and they have a friend who lives closer to the Shawnee area where they can stay so they’re going to be heading to the Shawnee area first. My guess is that they’ll find homes for all our quilts in Shawnee.
Not that it really matters but the man who had been my contact was trying to get the quilts all stacked neatly and he kept going on and on about each quilt. I think he wanted to open them all up and look at them. You know how sometimes folks look at a quilt just as they would a $10 blanket from the discount store? This guy didn’t . . he had a real appreciation for them so I think he will do as good a job as is possible to make sure they are all places exactly where they need to be placed.
The quilts that went to Hilary will be distributed in the West, Texas area and I’m sure I’ll be hearing more from Hilary about her efforts and I’ll share with you what I hear from her.
Thanks again to everyone who participated.
