Sponsored by Family & Community
FCE contributes blankets
as one of our Outreach Projects.
Monthly educational programs are presented at
10 AM in the
Multi-purpose room of the Cooperative Extension Office
distributed to shelters, such as Stepping Stones, the Betty Ann
Krahnke Shelter for victims of domestic violence, Heart and Home,
local hospitals, including Holy Cross, Montgomery General, Shady
Grove, NIH Ronald McDonald House and Children’s National Medical
include batting for the sewn blankets and sewing machine repairs; we
have been blessed with financial donations to FCE for this project.
EVERYONE to our meetings. Some people come and stay all day, some
only long enough to drop off a finished quilt and pick up more
supplies. Some women work behind the scenes doing their work
quietly on their own and sending the finished blanket with a friend.
So come on over, bring a sandwich and a smile and we will supply
materials, a drink, and dessert.
information please call Pat at (301) 460-5451.
