Our philanthropic efforts have resulted in many quilts and quilted
items being made by our members to be given where the need is
greatest at the time.  Recipients have ranged from Ronald McDonald
House to the OMC Pediatric Department, various programs for abused
women and children, senior centers, Hospice House of the Foothills,
Helping Hands of Clemson, Habitat for Humanity, cancer treatment
patients, and therapy dolls for pediatric patients at MUSC in
Charleston. Disaster relief has also been a focus for our philanthropy
and includes recipients in Hurricane Sandy, Bosnia, Sarajevo, Katrina,
Haiti, and the earthquake in Japan.  We also make patriotic quilts to
give to Wounded Warriors from the wars in Dedication in our area, we
make a small wall-hanging.  We have adopted Lakeview Assisted Living
and have committed to make a monthly donation to be used to provide
for needs and extra treats to the residents there.  Each year, we
make and fill about 100 stockings which are distributed to various
organizations locally.  Often times, ths is the only Christmas present
the recipient receives.  A charity auction of member's donated quilted
items is held during each Quilt Show, and all of the cash proceeds are
distributed in our area. Our Daily Bread, Helping Hands of Clemson,
Rosa Clark Clinic, and Lakeview Assisted Living are recent recipients
of these funds.

And so it goes--much remains the same as envisioned and begun 26
years ago by a few women.  Some things change as the years go by and
conditions warrant, but the love of guild members for quilting and
each other remains constant.
