Stocking for Soldiers project is Oct. 8

Quilter's Eden, the DIVAs and Soldiers' Angels have teamed up to make "Stocking for Soldiers" to send a holiday package to all North Dakota and Minnesota deployed soldiers. Soldiers' Angels is a national 501(c)3 that has the mission of "May no soldier go unloved."

Please join us Sunday, Oct. 8, between noon and 5 p.m. upstairs at Quilters Eden (across from Cabela's) in East Grand Forks. Quilter's Eden is providing the pattern and the machines -- we need people to assist us with the cutting and sewing and to bring holiday fabric. (Children eight and up are welcome, but must be supervised and assisted by their parent.) If you cannot attend this event, but want to assist, feel free to drop off fabric or homemade stockings to Quilter's Eden any time prior to Oct. 8.

Many of the service members that are deployed this upcoming holiday season are UND students on academic leave, UND alumni and the local community residents. For more information, please contact Shelle Michaels, or (218)779-7271.
