Fall Fashion Give-a-way for the SF Foster Youth

Thanks to so many of your contributions for our SF Foster Youth and our matching funds donor ,we are able to provide each and every SF Foster child with at least three new clothing items.  Originally we were doing a “birthday bag” but that was a great idea that did not work.    Are we discouraged, NO.  We simply found a more productive way to deliver all the items to the SF Social Workers so that they can deliver to our Foster Youth.  Quilters always find a way to get it done!!!!!!!

We will bring the items to the office of San Francisco Human Resources at 170 Otis Street in the month of October.

We have  separated our items into three categories and have three different times for the delivery:


New borns to age three                Tuesday, Oct. 4  

Ages four thru twelve                   Wed., Oct. 19 & Thurs. Oct. 20

All the teens (approx. 52%)        Wed., Oct. 26 & Thurs. Oct. 27

We are collaborating with the leadership of the social workers and have reserved rooms at their facility for this distribution.


We will be emptying out FAB and having all the items delivered in their duffle bags to the SF Foster Youth..  YEA!!!!

Yes, we will continue to support the newborns and babies born to SF  Foster Youth.  We will continue to make the quilts, receiving blankets and burp cloths.  Those are so popular.

And yes, we will continue to support the SF Foster Youth that age out of the system and are beginning a new life with a support package of bedding, toiletries and a selection of small appliances.  This also has proved to be very successful.

And yes, we are providing pillowcases to the family house for children with life threatening diseases.

And yes we are still doing wheelchair quilts.

We will provide from time to time items for the Holidays but we will not collect school clothes at the level we have for the past two years.

We will be turning over the FAB facility to our friends at Designing a Difference and they are planning on a manufacturing space to teach and employ young at risk youth. 

All of our quilts for sale will now be housed in QuiltWorks and yes we will have area for volunteers to continue to support our programs.

And YES, ThriftStich remains open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

From 12 – 5.

If you have receiving blankets please bring them to us for our Oct. 4 delivery. 

Thanks for all of your support on behalf of our programs…….

Hope to see you soon!!!!!!
