"No one has to face cancer alone"
Comfort Quilts is an ongoing community outreach program. Comfort quilts are offered to women, men and children facing the challenges of cancer Boca Raton Regional Hospital Infusion Center, and the Lynn Cancer Institute of Boca Raton and Delray Beach.
The Comfort Quilts program encourages members of Quilt Guild by the Sea to participate in making quilts for the patients with cancer.
QGbtS has delivered 218 Comfort Quilts (compared to last years 150) to recipients at the Infusion Center and Trauma Center. The patients and staff at the Lynn Infusion Center and Trauma Center are excited at the prospect of being recipients of our quilts.
In October 2019 a request was received for small quilts to cover NICU isolettes in the Neonatal Unit at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Twenty (20) covers were delivered for the NICU in November.
Workshops are held monthly, for our members of all abilities, to assist in the piecing of quilts.
