    The Dr. Maurice J. Hart Veterans Center. This is a transitional apartments and have 26 apartments for veterans who have become homeless. These are beautiful quilts these ladies are so generous with their talents. The quilters in the area have also been donating toiletries to the center as well, so far about 3 suit cases have been donated.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Please convey to the vets how grateful we are for their service. That they would be homeless is a travesty!

    So many beautiful quilts, they will be loved and appreciated. So good of so many to give these to these wonderful men who served our wonderful country. A real shame for them to end up homeless.
