It has come to our attention that a rumor was spreading we had too many quilts, and that some of the quilts, stockpiled in a warehouse in California, were sold for $1 each.  This is absolutely false!  The quilts are lovingly cared for by Wrap-A-Smile until they are needed.  They are packed and shipped to organizations only in the quantity that is needed for each upcoming mission. 

 

Occasionally we are given permission by a quilter to use their quilt as a raffle item.  When we do so the money raised is used to help pay for shipping costs and supplies or to financially support one of the upcoming missions.

Thank you to

DISTRICT 5080, an International District,  which encompasses, in part,  the south-eastern portion of British Columbia Canada has been supporting Wrap-A-Smile since Rotary's Centennial year. In 2008 quilters from Kimberley, Cranbrook, Creston, Nelson, Grand Forks, Nakusp, Beaver Valley and Salmo happily contributed 264 quilts to the cause... and more are coming.
