By devoting one week per month to outreach projects, our quilters extend the mission of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women well beyond the borders of Passaic, beyond the borders of New Jersey -- even beyond the borders of the United States! Under the direction of our quilting instructor, Sr. Pat Reynolds, SC, our quilters have been busy making small bags for distribution to children in Haiti. The bags will be filled with stuffed animals and sent to Haiti with the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth (Convent Station, NJ) who minister there. The photos below show our quilters and the finished product. (Email subscribers: If you do not see the photos embedded in your email, click here to go to the blog to view them.)
The quilters' outreach costs the Center about $50 per month.
