Castle Rock Adventist Hospital
On September 1, 2016 Jacque S. met with Jacque N., Program Coordinator for Castle Rock Adventist Hospital to deliver quilts for their Hospice Care Cart. Patients of all ages who are in Hospice Care are able to pick a quilt for themselves. If they unable to do so, a family member picks out the quilt for them. The quilt provides comfort to the patients during a difficult time. Castle Rock Adventist Hospital is a new facility and this program has been received well by patients and their families.
Larimer County Department of Human Services
A delivery of quilts was made by Sara V. to Christina U. on October 7, 2016 for THE HUB, Youth Assessment Center in Fort Collins. Christina is the Volunteer Coordinator for THE HUB which is a center responsible for finding foster care for children of all ages who have been suddenly removed
from their homes. This very busy center offers family counseling trying to enable the children to be returned to their homes. The quilts are welcomed by the children who sometimes have nothing with them when they arrive at THE HUB.
Evergreen Fire Rescue
Barbara C. delivered quilts to Evergreen Fire/Rescue on October 21, 2016. The winter months are the greatest time of need for the quilts because of
heavy traffic on I-70 during ski season. The Evergreen firefighters respond to calls on this busy highway during harsh winter weather. They feel that the quilts bring comfort to the children who are involved in weather related accidents.
Top of the Trail (CASA Program)
Dianne M. and Barbara C. made quilt deliveries to Janeth, of the Douglas/Arapahoe/Elbert County CASA Program on July 20 and September 13, 2016. Janeth is a
member of the Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused and neglected children. The children who have been receiving the quilts from Firehouse
are living in a facility called Top Of The Trail and is a foster home for them. In addition to the quilts the children are receiving pillow cases and large bags to carry their personal belongings that have been made by Firehouse volunteers.
Littleton Fire Station #19
On October 27, 2016, Joyce S. and Jacque S. delivered two quilts to the new Littleton Fire Station #19 in Trailmark. They met with firefighters and paramedics Brandon, Duane and Jared. Because this is such a new station, they don’t have a busy call load yet and requested only two quilts. They will cover the homes in Trailmark, homes north of C470 and Wadsworth, accidents on west C470, and the western part of Chatfield State Park. Station #19 opened in September and had a house warming inviting all of the surrounding neighbors to attend.
