Disaster Relief Quilts

Disaster Relief Quilts

Late last summer, Hurricane Harvey slammed into the coast of Texas, bringing with it once-in-a-century rainfall, leading to unfathomable devastation. Before we could catch our breath, Hurricane Irma pummeled Florida, followed by Maria ravaging Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. With homes underwater, vehicles washed away, and countless people losing all of their worldly possessions, we knew, as a community of quilters, we had to do something to help. So we called on you, our amazing Missouri Star family, and you sent boxes and envelopes and dropped off packages, all filled with handmade quilts, blankets and pillowcases. Each created with love to be shared with someone in need. Packages were mailed from all across the globe, and when all the quilts were counted, there were more than 9,000 sent to us to be given away. And given away they were. Watch below to see the impact your generosity and kindness has had on Missouri Star, the Hamilton community, and those who were the recipients of your acts of love.
