Raffle Quilts

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.  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 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.
