Ellen Ashbaugh, from Lodi Rag Quilters, presented quilts to Lion Jonathan Strong from the Salvation Army at a recent Lodi Lions Club meeting. These quilts were provided for children that reside at the Salvation Army’s Hope Harbor Family Living Shelter.

 The Lodi Lions Club had recently made a monetary donation to Lodi Rag Quilters for materials to assemble the quilts. In addition to the Salvation Army, Lodi Rag Quilters provides quilts to the San Joaquin County California Highway Patrol, foster kids, the Lodi police and fire departments, Lodi House, Kiwanis Family House at the University of California, Davis, and the Transitional Learning Center for homeless children. Since 2009, over 2,000 quilts have been provided to children going through physical or emotional trauma. Lodi Rag Quilters’ slogan is: “Wrapping children with love in their time of need.”

Lodi Rag Quilters is always in need of materials used in the quilts, including cotton flannel fabric, quilt batting, flannel sheets or receiving blankets, 100-percent cotton children’s prints, thread and, of course, cash donations. For more information or to donate, contact Ellen Ashbaugh at 209-663-2031 or Sheree’ Coe at 209-639-8186. Donations can also be dropped off at Quilter’s Friend Quilt Shop, 527 W. Lodi Ave. in Lodi.
