The Red River Valley Quilt Guild chose not to do a single raffle quilt whose proceeds would benefit our guild. Instead three of our members donated quilts for local charitable organizations to raffle and help them raise much needed funds.
Each organization is now selling tickets for its assigned quilt (see contact information below.) Tickets are $1 each or 6 tickets for $5. Tickets will also be sold at the show in the booth where all 3 quilts will be on display. Each ticket sold will raise $1 for that organization. Support our community by buying tickets from all 3 organizations!
The three organizations and their missions are listed below. You will also see the contact information and quilt information.
The mission of the Downtown Food Pantry is to feed the hungry of Lamar County with no regard to race, religion, sex or country of origin. We deliver the food as efficiently as possible, always being cognizant of the resources we have been given.

The mission of the New Hope Center is to provide a home of hope and direction while instilling self-respect and dignity to those in need.
Our short-term goal is to equip individuals and families with the support and skills for self-sufficient living by addressing their educational, vocational, spiritual, and emotional needs in residential and non-residential settings.
Our long-term goal is to help break the cycle of homelessness and assistance dependency. Our program is designed to help individuals discover their dignity, self-worth, and God-given potential. Individualized programming helps each person develop self-esteem, self-sufficiency, self-confidence, self-respect, and ultimately independence and family stability.
