Trinity groups and individuals who contribute to the Quilts and Kits projects will find changes this year. Orphan Grain Train is the new distribution point for our donations. School, hygiene, layette, etc. kits have a new list of items with small changes in the requirements. It is important to follow the lists exactly as given.
Item lists have been provided to groups and copies can be found on the foyer kiosk. Completed kits may be dropped off at the Mission Campus in the quilters’ room downstairs next to the kitchen annex.


VERY IMPORTANT:  No additions, deletions or substitutions for any of the kits.  Do not include items with religious, camouflage, patriotic or military symbols.  Do not add money, photos, or personal notes.  Although well-meaning variations are tempting, please do not do this.  It may result in heavy fines and/or the entire shipment being confiscated by customs officials.
