SCVQG Community Involvement

We have a very active and productive community service side to our guild opportunities.  The members of the committee and our membership support many different types of organizations.  We have had wonderful support from our membership in supplying The Painted Turtle Camp with several requested items such as:

  • turtle pillows and small quilts to return home with the campers as a reminder of their week of summer fun
  • take home quilts for siblings on the family weekends
  • the many single bed quilts that are washed each week to get ready for the newest group of campers to visit
  • quilts that adorn the walls and cover equipment through the location

Other groups we support but not limited to:

  • Senior Center in Newhall: lap quilts, placemats, shawls, wheel chair quilts (click the link below for more information)
  • VA hospital in West Los Angeles: quilts to returning vets
  • Veterans Housing: quilts for the beds
  • Habitat for Humanity: homes for veterans in Santa Clarita - quilts of any size, at least one per home or veteran
  • Sheriffs Department: quilts and pillow cases for children picked up in domestic disputes
  • Ronald McDonald House: quilts
  • Castaic Animal Shelter: cat or dog mats
  • Under the Bridge: quilts & pillows for the homeless
  • Guide Dogs of America in Sylmar: raffle quilt
  • "Dresses for Africa": girls' cotton dresses sent to different destinations in the world

Quilts for our Veterans

Habitat for Humanity Veteran Quilts 2016

 Our Veterans who qualified for a home in the City of Santa Clarita received a Quilt when they moved into their new home. Our members from the SCVQG made each of these Quilts to honor each Veteran and their family.  The City of Santa Clarita gave the guild a grant to help support our efforts to make these beautiful Quilts
