Philanthropy Newsletter: Check out the Conejo Valley Quilters Photo Gallery to see photos of quilts CVQ donated to to both James Storehouse and Lighthouse for Women and Children. Last week James Storehouse accepted 15 quilts. They were pleased to receive the quilts, appreciating the work that went into making them. Our donation also included hand towels, bags and pillowcases left over from the quilt show. In the next month we will label, photograph and distribute the balance of the quilts that didn’t sell at the Quilt Show Boutique and Quilts for Sale. The quilts will go to both organizations. Lynn Jurss is making good progress with the weighted quilts that are to go to Autism Communication Center a CLU. These are not included in the photo gallery at this time.
