Bushfire & Drought Relief: Message from the President

Calling all QuiltNSW members: We have had numerous enquiries about how we, as a community, can help the bushfire victims, especially those who have lost everything. Whilst there may be occasion to donate quilts at a later date, we believe donations of money is the immediate need, which is indeed currently suggested by the RFS. So here’s how we can help:

  • Raffle a quilt on behalf of your group
  • Donate the money directly to the charity
  • Email me the details of your group and of your donation and we will keep a running total.

On the flip side of this, we should not forget the victims of drought, so maybe raffle one quilt for the bushfire victims and one quilt for those affected by drought.For donations to bushfire victims, the RFS website suggests the following for donations:

For donations to drought victims please see CWA of NSW Drought Aid.
We will, as a committee, reach out to several organisations, advising that we can help with quilts when they are required. If you know of any local need or QuiltNSW members that need help please let me know.

Stay Safe.

Mandie Tyler
QuiltNSW President
