Sister Shirley did a short presentation on the new Lila Mae's House: A Place of Healing that has opened in Sioux City. She talked about the very real problem of human trafficking in Siouxland, she requested our Guild make a beautiful quilt for them to auction at their 2021 fund raiser next January.
The mission of the Lila Mae's House is to provide a safe, healthy environment where adult survivors of sex trafficking can rest, heal, recover and develop life skills to become empowered, independent and self-sufficient women.
Jan Cook of the Twisted Sisters Sewing Group was the Master of Ceremony for the presentations of the Quilts of Valor.
