When Dave and Cindy saw the UPS truck pull up with a mystery box, they were curious as to what the brown package could contain. The 2009 spring raffle winners told Americans Helping Americans® staff,
“We were both thrilled and shocked to learn that we had won the quilt. As we read your letter, it became even
more significant to us as the quilt was made by people in West Virginia. My husband is a native of West Virginia. He had to leave the state in the 1960’s to find employment but still has family in a few different counties. We visit West Virginia yearly and our hearts are saddened to see the struggles many people have. Our lives have been very blessed and we hope that in some small way our donations enable the wonderful work of your organization to help people in the Appalachian area. Please convey our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all those in the sewing program”.
Thank you to all our 2009 raffle participants; your steadfast concern to fight poverty in the Appalachian hills is helping to rebuild the lives of men, women and children each and every day.
