Quilt Presentation - April 14, 2010

April 14th, 2010 was a great day! Delta employees and freinds donated over 1,500 handmade quilts to Primary Children's Hospital.

The wonderful girls from Daisy Troop 317, who were kind enough to present the flag and lead everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance. They also donated 29 quilts. Thanks girls!

Here's a great shot of the labels kids see when they get their quilts. They'll always know they're loved by someone at Delta!

2010 Quilt Presentation

On April 14, 2010 Delta Air Lines Employees will make a special donation to Primary Children's Medical Center as part of their, "A Quilt for Every Bed" program. The program gives handmade quilts to children that are admitted into the center for extended stays and procedures. The hospital has a long standing tradition of placing a homemade quilt or blanket on the bed of each child, which they are able to keep at the end of their stay. It is estimated that pver 3,000 blankets will be given out over the course of a year, roughly 1,500 of which will come through this program. Over the past nine years Delta Air Lines employees, their families, and freinds from across the country have come together to make quilts using donated supplies for the Children's Center. Over the course of the year local businesses and volunteers participate in donating time and supplies to provide the quilts for the children. This blog is being started in the hopes to help promote the cause of the Quilt Project. The economy has taken its toll on donations, and the number of people able to help has dwindled. Help is needed in any form it can be given. The picture above is from 2008, when the amount of quilts was at its peak and was held at the Delta Center in downtown Salt Lake City, UT.
