Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT)
My First Home Project
May – August 2020
JIT is a program that helps support those in San Diego County, ages 18 – 26, that have ever spent time in the foster care system. They provide various services to these individuals to help them break the cycle of foster care, become self-sufficient, and build a secure future.
We support the My First Home project, which helps to set up a first apartment and furnish that apartment for each individual. Our focus for this trimester is on throw and bed sized quilts. Quilts should be 50″ x 60″ or larger.
Riverside Medical Center’s Chemo Lounge
September – December 2020
We support the Chemo Lounge by providing quilts for patients to use during their treatment at the center. Patients are able to keep the quilt they have chosen after their treatment.
Our focus for this trimester is on lap/throw sized quilts – approximately 50″ x 60″.
Community Resource Center – Holiday Baskets Program
We support the Community Resource Center and their Holiday Baskets program by donating quilts of all types and sizes at the end of the year. This program helps to support families in need and allows them to select from a variety of goods such as food, clothing, blankets, toys, and more.
