The San Diego Modern Quilt Guild is proud to support local organizations that are making a difference in people’s lives with the donation of quilts to comfort and cheer. Each trimester, our charity committee runs a drive to make quilts for a selected organization.
Past drives have made quilts for the Polinsky Children’s Center, Thomas Fire Victims and the Riverside Medical Center’s Chemo Lounge.
For more information on participating in a charity drive or to nominate an organization for an upcoming drive, please email our Charity Chairperson, Kristyn, at email@example.com.
Current Charity Drive
January – April 2019
Polinsky Children’s Center
The Polinsky Center is a 24-hour temporary emergency shelter which serves children from birth – 18 years of age, who must be separated from their family for their safety or when parents cannot provide care for them.
We support the center by providing quilts of all sizes for the children. We ask that it at least be able to wrap around their shoulders.

Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT) My First Home Project
JIT is a program that helps support those, ages 18 – 26, who are coming out of the foster care system by providing various services to them to help them become self-sufficient and break the cycle of foster care.
We support the My First Home project, which helps to set up a first apartment and furnish that apartment. Our focus for this trimester is on throw and bed sized quilts. Quilts should be 50″ x 60″ or larger.
