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.

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.
