Are you in search of a project that can bring light to others lives at their darkest times? Consider Quilts of Compassion, a nationwide charitable organization with its roots right here in Toledo. Started when founder Janice Grimes received a blanket from a chaplain while in the hospital recovering after a car accident, Quilts for Compassion creates and disperses quilts and afghans to those in need around the world. According to its website, the group has delivered more than 60,000 blankets to hospitals, nursing homes, retirement communities, homeless shelters, hospice facilities, rehabilitation facilities, halfway houses, at-risk youth facilities, homes for abused and neglected women and children, the missionary field overseas and disaster response areas in the United States. If you are interested in donating quilts, or actually joining one of the numerous sewing groups in the area that works with Quilts for Compassion, contact Grimes at 419-708-9343 or check out the website quiltsofcompassion.com.
