Shaking It Up a Little
For years we have housed the National Block Drive in Texas. Thank you, Suzanne and the team of volunteers for handling tens of thousands of blocks! Suzanne is ready to transition the coordination of the block drive to the next team, so we have moved the collection and distribution to South Carolina where Anne Mixon and the team of volunteers will take over.
We will be adjusting the way we distribute blocks to groups and reporting block counts monthly, communicating with State leadership so they are aware of the support National has provided.
Block counts will be reported monthly as National and Local counts. We know many of you participate in the drive, but like to ensure local efforts are kept in the community that produced them. We want to recognize those blocks as their own.
Our Members and the many individuals, guilds and organizations that make and send blocks each year are invaluable. Without your support of our Mission, we would not be as far along as we are in wrapping our military in comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. For you, we are grateful.
And now, what you’ve all been waiting to hear…our 2021 Blocks of the Year are:
The Eight Point Floating Star and the Floating WoNkY Star
