Dear PQ Board, staff, volunteers and April 14th event volunteers,
Delighted to share this Insight News story on PQ and the upcoming April 14th event. Thanks to Karen Bowen and the event communications committee!
Please share this with friends and encourage everyone to come celebrate with us April 14th at the Capri.
Our thanks to the Otto Bremer Foundation for another year of generous support. We’re grateful for your significant commitment to Patchwork Quilt and to the children we serve.
The Patchwork Quilt Board of Directors is delighted to announce that PQ will be moving in late May to Parkway United Church of Christ at Washburn and Lowry in North Minneapolis. The new site provides much needed additional space–both indoor and outdoor–and will enable PQ to serve more children. We will add our own eight week summer program beginning in June and will expand our after-school programming by 20% in the Fall. Ready for School. Ready for Work. Ready for Life!
Friends of Patchwork Quilt: plans are beginning for our second annual “Celebrating PQ Scholars” event to be held at the Capri Theater on Sunday April 14. Please consider joining the planning committee. Great people, fun opportunities. First meeting at PQ on Wed January 16 at 4:30 p.m. Please be in touch 612-270-0923.
Thanks in advance

Thanks to the many donors who supported Patchwork Quilt on GiveMN’s Give to the Max day November 15. Combined with the two matches (from Youthprise and the PQ Board), we raised a total of $8,405. All funds go to support our operations and to prepare our scholars to be Ready for School, Ready for Work, Ready For Life
Thanks to PQ Board member Sherman Patterson Jr and to EJ Henderson for including PQ families in the EJ Henderson 5th annual Turkey Basket Giveaway. May it be a Blessed Thanksgiving for all!
