May 24th was an exciting day at Angels’ Arms! 💙
Our friend Julie Treloar paid us a visit to drop off special gifts for two new youth in our homes, including the 2,000th quilt made by DenimQuilts.
These one-of-a-kind blankets provide so much warmth and comfort to the children in our homes. Over the last 10 years, each child that has set foot in an Angels’ Arms home has received one.
Thank you to Julie Treloar, Sally Safranski and all the DenimQuilts volunteers for giving our kids something of their very own to treasure forever.
⬇️In honor of their 10th Anniversary, below at TEN FUN FACTS about DenimQuilts:

3. The first ever made quilt was donated to an Angels’ Arms child.

“Being Jason’s mentor has been an incredible experience for me. The opportunity to have fun with someone, build a friendship with them, and pour into their life in a positive way is a huge blessing. I highly recommend it! Our lives are so much more meaningful and rich when we invest in others. I believe mentoring not only provides an opportunity to make an impact in someone else’s life – it provides an opportunity to impact your life as well.”Nate
