This generous queen-sized quilt was sewn by Country School Quilters in 2023 in Montpelier Va. It sports a hand-dyed gradated backing and is custom quilted.  It will be raffled in 2024 for $1.00 a chance by Western Hanover Emergency Action Team (WHEAT) to fund the open pantry.

FOOD PANTRY YOUTH. With the Food Pantry, we aim to protect the privacy of all clients who come to us for help. In order to maintain this, our policy is that all children under the age of 18 need to remain in the back areas – (pantry, cart loading, or freezer & fridge room). We are truly grateful for and encourage youth participation, but client privacy is something we value. PLEASE – if you are going to bring children volunteers who are under 18 years of age, contact Cathy Williams at phone # 804-752-2339, or Rickie Smith at phone # 804-916-0167. Thank you.
