We are looking for a volunteer and/or a network of volunteers to help complete a quilt with a long arm quilting machine. A senior citizen at Silver Birch Place has completed a quilt for 'Quilts of Valour Canada' which provides comfort to our injured Canadian Armed Forces members, past and present. She requires a long arm quilter to finish the approximately 6 ft x 8 ft cotton quilt. For more information about Quilts of Valour please see: www.quiltsofvalour.ca 
Staff are willing to drop off the quilt to the volunteer's home. All social distancing and sanitizing protocols will be strictly followed.  The quilt will also be quarantined for 7 days prior to drop-off.
Additional Details & Skills Required
This volunteer opportunity is best for an individual or group who would like to quilt in their home or business. Due to COVID-19, Volunteers are not entering our Senior's Lodge at this time.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
This provides a quilting volunteer with an amazing opportunity to help senior citizens, as well as injured Canadian Armed Forces members, past and present.
