Happy Hearts Quilts Guild Donates Handmade Quilts to Salem Charity

SALEM – Continuing the spirit of Christmas giving in the area, the Happy Hearts Quilt guild donated several handmade quilts to the local Sleep in Heavenly Peace chapter based in Salem.

Over the past several months, guild members have pieced, quilted, and bound 50 twin-size quilts to go towards Sleep in Heavenly Peace’s on-going mission and motto to assure “No kid sleeps on the floor in our town”.

Each Happy Dreams quilt presented to Sleep in Heavenly Peace included a hand-made label that coordinated with the quilt theme.

In addition to 50 handmade quilts, the guild donated 10 sets of sheets and pillows to the effort. Sleep in Heavenly Peace builds beds for area children who otherwise would not one.

Over the weekend, they delivered 14 beds to children in Marion County and 10 to children in Jefferson County.

So far this year, 735 beds have been delivered to area children. Currently, they have 913 beds built and ready to be delivered to children needing a bed to call their own.
