During the past year, our generous members have given of their time, effort, financial resources, skill, and talent to hundreds of individuals throughout Temecula Valley and the surrounding area.  0ver 6,000 volunteer hours culminated in an unprecedented year of community support, providing over 600 handmade articles, including twin-sized bed quilts, lap quilts, pillowcases, neo-natal blankets, changing pads, baby quilts, Christmas stockings, and pet beds. For the last two years, members also brought monthly items for the U.S. VETS program or the Alternatives to Domestic Violence (ADV) shelter, including toiletries, housecleaning supplies, socks and undershirts, bed sheets, washcloths, towels, office supplies, gift cards for gasoline and food, kitchen supplies, clothes and shoes, and interview suits for the veterans.  We also set up a sewing room and craft room with sewing machines and supplies at the ADV shelter.  See the section under "Partners/Charities" to find out more about the commitment we have made to our community.
