Delivery of quilts in the Ottawa/Gatineau area

We are especially in need of individuals to deliver in the Gatineau area. Those wishing to help with this work must have training in pastoral care, palliative care or counseling. We are also seeking someone to coordinate quilt distribution in the National Capital region.

General volunteers

General volunteers help out with a wide variety of tasks (e.g. making phone calls, picking up donated item, packing and mailing quilts) and provide support to internal Victoria’s Quilts Canada (VQC) committees in the Ottawa area, such as the Quilt-a-thon Committee. This is a great opportunity for those who want to volunteer but are limited in time, such as those who only have evenings and weekends, or who do not quilt.
