Shriners Transportation Fund
For more than 20 years, QuiltFest has hosted a Silent Auction to benefit the local Shriners’ Patient Transportation Fund. Dozens of small quilts contributed by guild members and other generous quilters have raised over $22,000 in the last seven years alone for this worthy cause. All proceeds to the Shriners’ fund aid in transporting children for medical care and treatment.
Me Dolls are delivered to Nemours Children’s Specialty Care and Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, and Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando. Me Dolls are simple muslin dolls given to patients to use for locating the “hurt” areas, and for doctors to use in explaining the child’s surgery or treatment. The dolls are made without facial features, allowing each child who receives a doll the opportunity to draw a face on it. Members of our quilt guilds and show attendees have been sewing and donating Me Dolls since 2005.
Ryan's Case For Smiles
A goal of Ryan’s Case For Smiles is to provide children with cheery pillowcases to brighten their hospital stay. Over the years, Ryan’s Case has delivered two million (and counting!) pillowcases throughout the country.
