The Village Scrappers of Livermore have taken on a portion of the ABC Quilt project. Connie Warren has been the Chairperson for entire state for many years. Through discussions with Connie and our involvement with the project since 1995 we offered to assist with quilt distribution in the western part of Maine. The area includes Hospitals in Farmington, Rumford and Lewiston.
We are also covering Fire & Rescue for Jay, Livermore Falls, Fayette and Livermore. This year we delivered over 70 quilts to these facilities. Quilts and blankets were made for anyone from a new born to a teenager.
The ABC Quilts Project originally was formed in 1988, to provide quilts for babies who were abandoned due to substance abuse or HIV/Aids infection. The program has evolved to include any baby or child in need. We give from the heart out of a generosity of spirit. The giving is without expectation of return. Although each quilt is personally signed by the maker with the message “Love and Comfort to you from…” there is no knowledge of who receives the quilt, nor personal delivery of the quilt to a specific child.
