Manteca Quilters contribute to many causes. We contribute to the Mayor's Committee on the Arts by buying tickets to the Bar-B-Q, we make quilts, pillowcases, and backpacks for kids, hats and bonnets for cancer victims, caps for preemies, hospice gowns for AIDS patients in the San Joaquin County Hospice Group, and contribute to Friends of the Library. We may contribute to other causes at the request and approval of the membership. At our Christmas Party each year, members may donate non-perishable foods, toys, or personal care items, to be distributed to local charitable organizations. The community supports our Quilt and Cloth Doll Show so it is appropriate that we give something back in return.
