This past year the Campbell River Quilters’ Guild was able to send a number of quilts to Ft. McMurray for distribution to the fire victims.

With approximately 70 members, the Campbell River Quilters' Guild does their part to help those in need

Over the past few years, the Guild has donated hundreds of items such as Christmas table runners, table centres, placemats, aprons, microwave bowls (just to name a few of the more popular items) to the Campbell River hospital gift shop.

While theh gift shop is one of the guilds’ main charity recipients every year, they also donate baby quilts to the labour and delivery department at the hospital, comfort quilts to emergency services as well as victim services and have made numerous lap quilts for residents of a couple of the senior homes here in  Campbell River.

This past year, thanks to the hard work of their approximately 70 members, they were able to send a number of quilts to Ft. McMurray for distribution to the fire victims.
