Through our Community Outreach service projects, the Denton Quilt Guild is involved in a variety of charitable and community service projects. For further details on our programs and quilt sizes, see the Community Outreach Overview/Quilt Size Chart.
- Our long-standing Kid Kwilts program has provided hundreds of quilts per year to children in need from the Denton area. The guild partners with Community Partners of Denton County which stocks the Children’s Protective Services Rainbow Rooms, Cumberland Presbyterian Children's Home, Woman to Woman Resource Center, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) as well as the National Adoption Day program.
- Our Storybooks To Go program provides children's storybooks along with a quilt made to match the story for reading programs for younger school children through local schools, hospitals, and advocacy agencies.
- Our QOV Bees (the Red, White, & Blue Bee and the Lone Star Broads Bee) make Quilts of Valor and other items for local veterans of foreign conflicts, as well as lap quilts for veterans in nursing homes.
- In 2022, we started making quilts for the CPS Graduating Seniors program. Here are the guidelines for our guild members when making quilts for this worthy group.
Other service projects to assist local organizations and businesses are on an ad hoc basis. For example, members worked on a group project to provide the Guyer High School drama program with a quilt as a prop for their play. The Guild made nap blankets for the Ann Windle School and quillows for Denton Christian Pre-School. Walker pockets and lap robes for nursing homes, Christmas stockings for active duty military and preschools are regular annual donations. Members have attended Barnes & Noble's storytelling events, as well as the annual Denton Storytelling Festival.
