helping our community

Local craftswoman and nurse Kathy Kearns has been involved for years with  the Passage Quilt Project based at Providence Portland Medical Center. Volunteers like Kathy sew beautiful lap quilts from donated fabrics and materials. Chaplains then give these small quilts to dying patients, which provide comfort for the patient, family and caregivers. The quilts are then presented to the family as a gift of love, comfort and remembrance.

Kathy, in addition to volunteering to make quilts for the patients, has also made a few sweet baby quilts to sell at the Summer Sale here at Camp Cactus.

Kathy is donating all proceeds from the sale of these gorgeous quilts to the Passage Quilt Project for the purchase of supplies.
