Quilt donation to Little Warriors

Quilting Sisters support children’s charity

On Saturday, June 22nd, at the Wetaskiwin Arts and Music Festival, Wetaskiwin’s Quilting Sisters quilt group donated a selection of quilts and a small amount of cash, to Little Warriors. The quilts were on display, at the Festival, for the entire morning, and many people wanted to donate their spare change, so a collection basket was set up and the proceeds were handed over, with the quilts.

Little Warriors is a residential treatment facility for child victims of sexual abuse. They accept small cohorts of children between the ages of 8 and 12 for intensive therapy and provide follow up care after children complete the initial 28 day program. Part of the welcome to their program is the gifting of a quilt (security blanket) to each child. The incoming child gets to choose which quilt they would like, from the dozens in the quilt room, and they also get to keep the quilt, taking it home with them, when they leave. This facility is the only one of its kind in Western Canada. Learn more about Little Warriors by visiting their website at https://littlewarriors.ca/.
