Quilts for the Homeless

Girl Scouts - Quilts for the Homeless

Mary Cotton Richard, a lifetime member of Girl Scouts is going to make a friendship quilt for the homeless and invites any girl or troop to consider making a quilt or blanket to be given away during November, December, January or February to the homeless. Throughout our Girl Scout communities, there will be hundreds of people seeking shelter from the cold.

Quilts or blankets can be made for a girl, boy, man or woman and will not only warm their bodies, but also their hearts. Quilts/blankets and questions can be sent to Mary through the GSNENY Albany Service Center, 8 Mountain View Ave., Albany, NY 12205.
(518)489-8110 or 1-888-447-6963.

Quilts/blankets can also be delivered to the Catholic Charities Housing Office, 41 North Main Ave, Albany, NY 12203.
