New Beginnings for Rayola in 2023!

Updated: Jan 30, 2023

The month of January is one of our favorite times at Rayola because we get to look back on the past year and reflect on how much progress we've made. We are so blessed to have amazing volunteers that help us fulfill our goals and make kids happy. In 2022, we totaled 371 quilt care packages, and we gave out hundreds of Valentine, Summer Fun, and Halloween bags with supplies.


So what is new with Rayola this year?


One of our most exciting pieces of news is Rayola was gifted the Old VFW building in West Branch. We are thankful for this opportunity to grow and expand our influence. The building will give Rayola a physical space to work, sew, and create new ways to support Michigan's Foster Care children. We will be holding an Open House at our new building in the Spring, so look out for updates on that event!


Working hard on the new building!

Other Events this year:

FEB 25--Euchre Fundraiser Night

AUG 1--Quilt show with Bittersweet Quilt Shop

Beginning of OCT--Annual Quilt walk in West Branch


Also, we have officially expanded to two more counties! If you are in Isabella or Claire county and you would like to learn more about our mission and purpose, please reach out!


How can I get involved?


We are continuing to make quilt care packages, as well as Valentine's packages for children in the Foster Care system in Northern Michigan. We are always looking for more talented volunteers to help us sew and put packages together, and write grants. If you have experience in this area and would like to help Rayola please contact us at rayolawb@gmail.com. Lastly, we want to thank all of the wonderful donors who have helped us get this far. We appreciate every single contribution, and it is because of you that we have been able to bless so many lives.


Here's to a great year!


Love,

the Rayola Team
