Wilsonville Piecemakers Donate Quilts to Home-Delivered Meals Participants

This winter, the Wilsonville Piecemakers, a local quilting group overseen by Wilsonville Community Seniors, Inc., donated 20 quilts to participants of the Home-Delivered Meals program.Quilt Donation to HDM  Mindy Bergquist, member of the Piecemakers, said the group “puts love and thought into each of [their] quilts”.  

The Piecemakers have been active for over 20 years and give back to the community year-round in a variety of ways, including donating quilts, hats, scarves, and more.  The group also volunteers for the Nutrition Program’s Congregate Meals.  They graciously accept donations of quilting-weight cotton fabric, quilting notions, and sewing machines, as well as monetary donations.  

The Home-Delivered Meals program, which has been around for over 30 years, provides weekday meals to home-bound seniors and persons who are disabled.  Many of the quilt recipients do not have family support, are bedridden, or otherwise in need.   

Evie Proctor, Nutrition Coordinator, says the delivery drivers are like the “eyes and ears of the community.”  For some program participants, the volunteer drivers are the only people they see each day.  Those interested in volunteering as a home-delivered meals driver may contact Evie at 503-570-1527.  Monetary donations are also accepted for the Home-Delivered Meals program.
