Thanks to the donation of a beautiful quilt from a local quilting group, Faith in Action is sponsoring a quilt raffle.
The raffle grand prize is a 92- by 72-inch quilt in brown, tan, cream, green and burgundy with a coffee-colored back. It is reversible and finished throughout with a swirling stitching pattern.
Local quilt groups have made many quilts and other projects to help worthy causes in the community, often asking for no more recognition than a heartfelt thank you. The Faith in Action Raffle Quilt will be on display at the Faith in Action Office in Hackensack, where tickets are available to purchase. It will also be on display at the Hackensack Flea Markets throughout the summer.
The quilt will be raffled off Sept. 27 during the annual Booya Supper in Hackensack with proceeds going to Faith in Action to cover volunteer training, mileage and coordination. Other prizes include a $50 gift card from Mark’s Market in Hackensack and an art package from the Traveling Art Pub in Walker.
Faith in Action is a nonprofit volunteer organization that coordinates neighborly help for people in need in Cass County. Volunteers assist with transportation, respite, friendly visits, light housekeeping and chores, ramp-building, basic home repairs and meals on wheels.
