Millet Arts and Crafts Guild donates to food bank

By Stu Salkeld The Pipestone Flyer

A group of Millet quilters showed their love for the community June 14 as they donated 13 quilts to the Millet Food Bank.

The Millet Arts and Crafts Guild decided to donate some quilts to the local food bank to help those in need. Guild member called the food bank to ask director Debbie Herman if the donation was needed.

She confirmed it was.

The quilts range is size and design depending on whom it was intended for. Some quilts were for adults, some for kids.

The guild has made many donations in the past, but quite a few of them were to large charities like the U of A Geriatrics. But the members thought it would be nice to support Millet and area residents in need.

The guild gave away 51 quilts in 2013, 84 in 2014 and 20 quilts in 2017.

Herman said the quilts will be offered to food bank recipients who are in need.
