In July 2017, we were blessed to be able to travel to Jamaica for vacation. Jamaica is one of my favorite places on earth. Jamaica is a beautiful island, boasting white sand beaches, blue mountains and amazing clear waters. The only thing more beautiful than the natural surroundings are the people who call this island home. The Jamaican culture is not one born of privilege, but is built on hard work and respect. They are a proud, but loving people. It is always a joy to be there among them.
While in Jamaica, I had the pleasure of meeting Chris Stout and others from VCP, The Veterans Community Project. You don’t expect to meet someone like Chris while hanging out in a pool in the Caribbean, but I never cease to be amazed at how God guides and directs our paths in order to fulfill the needs of others. The Veterans Community Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, on a mission to eliminate Veteran homelessness by providing transitional-housing for homeless veterans. They build and furnish tiny houses for homeless veterans. These tiny houses are built with either bunk beds or single beds. From talking to Chris, I learned that they have a need for 50+ twin size quilts over the next year. This is an awesome opportunity for us to unite as quilters and show our love and encouragement to veterans that need our help. I would like to see the Four Peaches Family meet and exceed the needed 50 quilts! Together we can reach out and make a difference because even one homeless veteran is too much. If you would like to be part of this giving opportunity, please email me and I will send you more information.
