AZ Blankets 4 Kids is an Arizona non-profit group that provides handmade quilts and blankets as gifts to ill and traumatized children in the Phoenix metropolitan area. We are able to accomplish this by having a group of dedicated Board Members and wonderful volunteers! Board members' duties are: to supervise construction of quilts at Quilting Bees and sewing groups. Board members also visit prospective sewing groups and agencies who receive our blankets/quilts. Board members supervise distribution of blankets to agencies, and pickup of blankets from quilting/fabric stores in the Phoenix metro area. Board members also publicize our events, seek grants from individuals and foundations, and keep our books and membership records/roster. We have approzimately 40 agencies that receive quilts from us, and approximately 30 different groups sew quilts for us. We hold 7-9 Quilting Bees each year and supervise construction of blankets at these bees. All of this is done on a shoestring budget, with many volunteers. We strive to provide a quality blanket or quilt for every child-- made with love!
