Quilts Needed For Safehome

Jane Bonuchi an employee of SAFEHOME, is the assistant to the Capital Campaign committee. SAFEHOME is the only domestic violence shelter in Johnson County; the exact location is confidential. They have just recently moved into a new and much larger location where for the first time clients have separate rooms and private bathrooms! The shelter has, children’s playrooms, playground, therapy rooms, counseling rooms, large dining area, kitchen, laundry area, etc. It is quite exciting. They are requesting an on-going supply of twin or trundle quilts so that the clients may take their quilt when they go on to their new lives. The trundle size is just as long as the twin but not quite as wide, approximately 45" by 72". Jane’s phone # is 913-768-0305 or SAFEHOME can be reached at 913-432-9300 -- ask for Jane.
