QAKH Report

QAKH (Quilters Against Kids Homeless/Hunger) produced 250+ quilts June-August 2015. The volunteers were diligent and productive while giving their time to continue to comfort homeless children. The numbers of hurting children continue to rise, and we strive to give these children warmth, comfort and hope. Quilts will be delivered through the elementary schools in the central Brevard area.
Persons wishing to donate funds or high quality quilting cotton fabrics may reach out by contacting us through this site. All assistance is deeply appreciate and goes to the project with no administrative funds attached.

Click on the video below for the August 2014 quilt-in. Though the woman at the beginning is identified as Sheryl Milner, QAKH's coordinator, it is actually Margie Engel. Margie will quickly tell you that Sheryl is much better looking, and younger too! The real treat is seeing Lydia Howald, one of our senior campers.
