On behalf of the SRS South Central Region I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the 2009 Christmas Quilts for Foster Children drive.

After collecting more than 1,500 quilts in 2008, we were concerned we might not get enough for every child this year but, once again, the caring people of Kansas stepped up with thousands of hours and millions and millions of loving stitches!

More than 1,200 keepsake quilts were collected and delivered to every foster child in our 17-county region, providing extra comfort for the holidays.

Thank you for joining us in this worthwhile project!
