Our mission is to build a bridge between racial, cultural, educational, and economic divisions within the community.

Memory Care Blankets
Our community-wide project begins with starter quilts sewn by Jolene Wickel, Anna Finke and Carol Doersom. Volunteers from our partner churches and throughout the community added tactile and colorful embelishments to make these blankets for those who suffer from Alzheimer's or memory loss. Purchase a blanket for a loved one, or underwrite a gift to an area memory care facility.
