Charity Quilt Donation (Bill Wilson Center)

Author: Lisbeth Polavarapu, 2021 VP of Philanthropy

Our second group of donated quilts this year went to Bill Wilson Center in San Jose. Our guild has donated quilts to Bill Wilson Center for many years, and we were happy to continue supporting them this year. 

Bill Wilson Center provides a variety of services to children, youth and families in Santa Clara county. They focus on providing counseling, housing, education, and advocacy, and have been working with youth in our community since 1973.

BWC is very appreciative of all the quilts they have received from us. The timing was great, and they were excited to be able to include our quilts in their Adopt-A-Family Holiday program. The quilts will be given to needy children in the Santa Clara county foster care system to bring some extra joy and warmth during the holiday season.
