Rossmoor Woman’s Club took part in the GFWC Blanket Challenge to help make 2,201 blankets. The General Federation of Women’s Clubs has a long history of providing handmade baby blankets and hats for the March of Dimes Mission Health Baby program. Rossmoor Woman’s Club was able to donate 27 blankets and 60 quilts from the skilled quilters of Heart 2 Heart Quilts to three area hospitals: MemorialCare Miller’s Long Beach, MemorialCare Fountain Valley and Fountain Valley Regional Hospital. They were all very excited to receive the donations and share with their NICU families.
Heart 2 Heart Quilts is located at Grace First Presbyterian Church in Long Beach. Through the gift of quilting, Heart 2 Heart Quilters are able to provide children in need with a warm blessing. Contact the church office at (562) 420-3393 for more information.
The RWC is a social and philanthropic organization that was founded in Rossmoor in 1958, but accepts members from all surrounding areas. For more information, visit the group’s website at www.rossmoorwomansclub.com.
