Finding unique places for cherished treasures is an important key to reducing the stress of downsizing. We eliminate fears of cherished items being thoughtlessly discarded by finding unique places to which to donate them. In the case of a home that has a seamstress, or someone that loves crafting, one may find anything from a small box or to entire rooms filled with fabric, sewing notions, yarn and/or other miscellaneous sewing and craft items. We noticed that Judy, one of our team, was consistently purchasing these items out of her own pocket at our estate sales. She would swear us to silence and downplay the purchases. We all wondered what she did with so much sewing stuff as she had never even spoken of liking to sew. Only After inquiring of her one day what she did with her purchases, she told us about a wonderful organization called Good Samaritan Oncology Support Group. This group is comprised of women from teens to in their 90’s, that meet weekly to make beautiful handmade quilts for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. They personally deliver the quilts to local oncology offices and offer them to patients. Over 1,200 quilts have been made and donated since 2003.
Donations are gladly accepted. If you, or someone you know, would like to volunteer, call their President, Micky Sutton at 210.658.2246 or Joan Toler 210.373.9260. You don’t even need to know how to sew or quilt, they will be happy to teach you! NEXMOV. is proud to support such a wonderful organization.
