How to help

If you're a quilter, please check out our Guidelines and Shipping pages. Your beautiful quilts can comfort and support someone undergoing life-changing surgery.
Not a quilter? Not a problem! There are lots of ways you can help support the important mission of Wrap-A-Smile.
Spread the word. Our best source of quilts is quilting guilds, senior centers, and church groups. Help us reach out to these groups in your community by posting about Wrap-a-Smile on Facebook pages and other social media.

Help us financially. All labor, fabric and other materials needed to sew these quilts is generously donated by our quilters. Our biggest cash outlay is shipping the quilts to where they are needed most. It costs approximately $200 to ship 100 quilts. To reach our annual goal of 2000 quilts, we need to budget $4000. Your tax-deductible contribution of any size will help!
Please write checks to “Wrap-a-Smile” and mail them to 7 Oak Street, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538.
Wrap-A-Smile operates as a dba under the Rotary Club of Boothbay Harbor Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
If you're a Rotarian or quilt guild leader, invite us to speak about Wrap-a-Smile. We may be available to present an update on Wrap-a-Smile – what we’ve accomplished and what we hope to achieve in the near future. We're a great opportunity for your guild's charity outreach! For Rotary, this is a great program to involve “family of Rotary” – every club has a spouse or in-law who enjoys quilting and is looking to sew for a cause.
For more information on scheduling a speaker, please e-mail Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org
Help gather quilts in your region. We receive quilts from all over the United States and Canada. To reduce our donors' shipping costs, it would help for us to have regional coordinators in various places. If you're interested in being a "quilt gatherer," please e-mail Ann at email@example.com
