President Recognizes Spokane Quilt Ministry

The President of the United States recently gave special recognition to two Spokane Valley (Wash.) Church members. Colleen Frogge and Donna Gardipee, received thanks for their efforts in making quilts for babies in need.

Their outreach project called "Jesus and Me; He is Love," has helped more than 275 young children during the past four years.

Foster children, patients at the Shriner's Hospital and those who have stayed at the Ronald McDonald house have been the recipients of the quilts.

Fogge and Gardipee, are excited about continuing this ministry. They are anxious for partners, since they have donated all the materials up to this point. Anyone interested in helping provide materials may contact the Spokane Valley Church.
