The Big 5-0

We have reached a milestone here at Margaret's Hope Chest. Last week we gave our
away our 50th quilt! Some of you may remember that it was my goal to give 50 quilts in the first year but that appears to have been overly ambitious! Now that I realize how much time and work is involved in running this, I am quite happy with what we have accomplished! Praise be to God for his wonderful plan for Margaret's Hope Chest.

Our 50th quilt was given with 9 others to The American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids. They will be given to fire victims this winter season.

We also gave 3 quilts to a family in the GR area who is really struggling this year. My sister-in-law and some of her co-workers have adopted this family for the Chirstmas season. We are happy to provide a warm and cheery gift to each of the 3 girls in that family.
