Quilt drive for People's City Mission begins Nov. 25

The International Quilt Study Center and Museum is partnering with Phi Delta Theta to collect quilts for the less fortunate.

The organizations will collect new and gently used quilts of all sizes Nov. 25 to Dec. 19 at the museum, 33rd and Holdrege streets. Infant, child and adult quilts will be donated to the People’s City Mission in time for the holidays.

“Quilts offer compassion and care that goes beyond physical needs,” said Leslie Levy, executive director of the museum. “With winter and the holidays upon us, we invite our community to join us in sharing that warmth.”

Donations for the quilt drive can be made to the museum’s front desk from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. To make arrangements to deliver outside of regular museum hours, call 402-472-6549.

Beginning Dec. 2, the museum will also offer free admission through Feb. 5. To view a list of current and upcoming exhibitions, go to http://www.quiltstudy.org/.
