One of our charities the Guild works with is called Showers of Appreciation. This charity throws baby showers for expecting military wives, whose husbands are deployed overseas. We service Camps Pendleton, Miramar, and 29 Palms. The Quilters' Guild donates quilts as gifts for the showers.
Another charity that receives our quilts is the Seven Stars Foundation, which sponsors the children of members of the military to go to Camp Whittle, in order to bring some positivity to their lives while their loved ones are deployed, or have fallen in service. The organization was founded locally in 2007 to honor the lives of the seven Marine Corps crewmen who lost their lives when their helicopter was shot down in Iraq. The family of one of the marines, Jared Landaker, started the foundation in his honor. The donated quilts go along with the kids, to keep them warm at camp and take home.
