Christmas Challenge - Mooresville Christian Mission

Did you know that the Mooresville Christian Mission has taken care of over 4,000 families so far this year?  They are even seeing the "middle class"!  With the unemployment rate hovering around 10%, and no relief in sight, the Mooresville Christian Mission is going to be serving even more families that are trying to get a job, pay their power bill and put food on their table for their families.

Quilters Loft has always taken on challenges to help our community.  We have had food drives for the Soup Kitchen, and My Sisters House.  In past years we have supported Quilts of Valor and at Christmas we have made cards for Veterans.

This year we are taking donations of white cotton socks, donating fabrics to make special pillowcase and making cards to support our Veterans in the local VA Hospital in Salisbury.  We learned they had a great need for white socks and thanks to our wonderful customers, we are close to our goal of 100 socks.  Lots of you came to our pillowcase sew-ins and we are close to 100 pillowcases too.  

We are having a girls night out Friday Dec 10 starting at 5pm to finish the cards just in time for our Christmas Open House so that all of you can assist in personalizing the cards for the Veterans.  This will make them so much more special!

This year I challenge all of you (Christmas Challenge) to help me meet our goal of $2,000 to donate to the Mooresville Christian Mission to provide Christmas or Holiday meals for 80 families.  I learned at Thanksgiving that $25 provides a meal for a family in need.  For every $25 that you donate, I will match up to $1,000.

All you need to do is to bring your check  made out to the Mooresville Christian Mission and drop it off before December 16  at Quilters Loft, so I will be able to match your donation.  The Mooresville Christian Mission is a charitable organization, so your contribution is tax deductible.

Let see how we can make a difference in our community.  All of us at the Quilters Loft thank you in advance for your support of the Mooresville Christian Mission.
