The Ackfeld Manufacturing Company (this is the company that makes the cute hangers used to hang the small quilts) is collecting quilts for the Joplin, Missouri residents due to the recent tornado that tore through their town. They are asking you to consider donating "any" quilt you have just sitting around. They will pass them on to the Red Cross in Joplin. The address is: Jim Ackfeld, Ackfeld Manufacturing, 360 Emerson Road, Reeds Spring, MO 65737. I know the residents of Joplin would appreciate "anything" right now that any of us can give.

God Bless!

My bad, you are so correct that the city should read as Reeds Spring, MO.

For those of you who are donating I want to say thank you. While I am not in joplin or been affected by the storm down there I know that there is a great need and any and all helps appreciated. You guys are the best board people around.
