Our Father’s Lutheran Church is an ongoing donor to Vinland Center’s quilt donation program. Over the past two years, they have donated five quilts to our program with more continuously being made. However, their sewing machines currently need replacing. Help fund their group so they can keep creating beautiful quilts for our clients! They will use the donations to purchase three new machines and quilting materials. You can donate at their gofundme site by visiting: http://www.gofundme.com/x8grztg.
