Acacia Quilt Guild has a mission of promoting the art and knowledge of quilting while serving the community via philanthropic endeavors. We truly appreciate the generosity of our membership in giving so much time, effort, and money towards philanthropy.
Many of us have experienced the love, warmth, and comfort that a quilt can bring! Acacia through its philanthropy shares that love, warmth, and comfort with the local community. Each year, we donate over 400 handmade items (including quilts, pillowcases, book bags, and Christmas stockings) to local charities such as Thomas House and the Buena Park Rotary Club. We are also delighted to provide quilts to the families of veterans, active military personnel, and other respected individuals residing in Buena Park upon request for commemorative events. Other local charities that we support include The Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park, Senior Care Centers, Relay for Life (American Cancer Society) team, and families of Marines at Camp Pendleton with various donations (sewn and non-sewn).
We know that there are lots of groups out there doing great work in our community, so we also design, create and donate themed quilts to other organizations such as the Buena Park Library and Buena Park Youth Theatre to use as fundraisers which, in turn, raise hundreds of dollars for these groups.
Kits, kits, and more kits!
We've got them. People need them. It's a match made in quilting heaven.
Acacia Members: Would you like to be more involved in philanthropy activities?
We have a bunch of kits ready to go, and we'd love to get some of them to you for your sewing pleasure. There are many organizations in need, and completed items will boost our philanthropy efforts for this year. Acacia has a regularly scheduled meeting for distributing kits. Currently, a pickup/drop-off meeting happens every month on the 2nd Thursday at Ehler's Event Center back parking lot from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. If you're already planning on attending the pickup/drop-off day, you're all set. We will have kits available for you to choose from!
