Our Mission:

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.

On the right, donated 13 Quilts, 50 preemie quilts, 25 burp cloths and 200 preemie hats delivered to the NICU at San Joaquin General Hospital.

9/2019: Our Manteca Quilters Philanthropy group making their annual donation to the Manteca Unified School District for distribution to homeless students.  A donation of 150 lap quilts, 150 pillowcases, 150 filled toiletry bags & 150 knitted/crocheted scarves were accepted by Health Services at Manteca Unified.   Kudos to the Philanthropy ladies who show up every Tuesday and sew for our community members in need.
