Community Service

The Big Hearts Charity Team welcomes all BPQ members to participate in our Block Party Quilters charity projects.

Over the years our charity efforts have doubled.  Beside Ronald McDonald House, we donate to Eastside Baby Corner, Evergreen Hospice, Issaquah Highlands YWCA, and Evan's Embrace.

We invite members to join our "Big Heart" Charity Group.  Meetings are normally held monthly and will be announced via the newsletter, at the General Meeting, and or via individual email.  Attending meetings is not a requirement to participate in BPQ charity efforts.  Contact the Charity Team if interested of if you have ANY questions at

Thanks to everyone who participates in making our charity efforts such an amazing success!  Without  the time, love and materials donated we would not be able to provide the number of quilts and pillowcases to as many well-deserved families and individuals.

For information on participating and making charity quilts and pillowcases please  

"Wes had been life flighted twice in two weeks.  His exhausted family was given the opportunity to stay at McDonald house when his stay stretched to weeks.  Imagine how lifted his family felt when they were escorted to the quilt room and told to pick any one they wanted for Wes.  What a sweet and moving gift. Here he is in the hospital bed snuggled under his new quilt.  Suddenly the room feels more homey.  Thank you for this sweet gift.  We hope that someday very soon he will go home and he will take this loving treasure with him.  Thank you!"
