The QUILTERS meet on Tuesdays at 1:00 PM.
Together they make and provide quilts / sleeping bags which are then given to “My Brother’s Keeper Ministries” who distribute them to other mission and ministry groups in several states for those who are homeless.
Since 2017 our QUILTERS have provided the following number of quilts / sleeping bags:
2017 … 86
2018 … 83
2019 … 75
2020 … 44
Flo and Jim Wheatley started “My Brother’s Keeper Ministries” in obedience to Jesus’ instruction and challenge us to care for “the least of these” among our sisters and brothers. Since 1982, “My Brother’s Keeper Ministries” has given away hundreds of thousands of these quilt / sleeping bags, including over 200,000 here in Northeast Pennsylvania.
Among the local and nearby missions and ministries in Pennsylvania that have received these quilt / sleeping bags are:
