Community Projects

The members of the Dufferin Piecemakers are a very generous group of people. They donate fabric and supplies plus many hours of their time to create quilts that benefit a variety of community groups. Some of these groups include Choices Youth Shelter, Meals on Wheels, Bethel House Hospice, and Hospice Dufferin, Family Transition Place, Peel Dufferin Victims Services, Headwaters Health Care Centre's (HHCC) Sexual Assault Clinic and Mother and Child Unit, Dufferin Child And Family Services (DCAFS), Big Brothers and Sisters and the Upper Grand Board of Education young Mom's Program.  In addition pillow cases go to Sick Kids Conn Kerr Cancer program, journals to Family Transition Place, monetary donations to local food banks and a yearly education grant to the Dufferin County Museum and Archives.
