Our guild works together to make quilts for donation to community organizations. We’ve compiled this list of Boise-area recipient organizations, types of quilts they accept and other pertinent information. We will try to update this list occasionally, but you may want to contact them to verify prior to dropping off your quilt donation. (updated Jan. 2023)


  • Quilt sizes: Twin and queen size are the most commonly needed for recipient families; other sizes will find a home, too.
  • Special notes: Please attach a simple tag or label (e.g., a note safety-pinned to a corner) indicating the size to help with sorting and distribution.
  • Delivery: Drop off at 511 S Americana Blvd., Monday – Friday anytime between 9am and 3pm.
  • What they do: CATCH works to create a safe, healthy, connected community by embracing Housing First best practices, empowering those without housing, building collaborative partnerships, and increasing public understanding to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring.
