Members of the DeKalb County Quilters’ Guild recently donated $3,000 to the Kishwaukee Health Foundation to help provide mammograms to uninsured women in the community.

The Quilters Guild established the fund with the Kishwaukee Health Foundation in 2003, to help underwrite the cost of screening and diagnostic mammograms for Tri County Community Health clients who have no insurance coverage. Tri County is located in the Grant Building on the campus of Kishwaukee College, Malta.

Members of the Guild auctioned 100 miniature quilts in a silent auction at their recent bi-annual quilt show. Proceeds from the silent auction are used to support the DeKalb County Quilter’s Guild mammo fund.

Other organizations and community members are invited to take part in this worthwhile cause by making donations to this fund.
