Donor Family Quilts
The Donor Family Quilts memorialize and honor those who helped others through organ and tissue donation. Donor families are offered the opportunity to create a quilt square that is a memorial tribute to their loved one, and Connie Ballard, a donor mom from Mt. Sterling, will incorporate all newly contributed quilt squares into an existing quilt, or begin a new one.
As a donor family member, you have the opportunity to honor your loved one by contributing a Quilt square to the Local Donor Family Quilt, which stays in the Kentucky/Indiana/West Virginia area. There is no timeframe, so you can create and submit a Quilt square to honor your loved one at any time. Download the Donor Family Quilt Brochure to learn more about creating and contributing a square to a quilt.
The quilts are also available for display at community events throughout the state to promote organ and tissue donor awareness. When they aren’t traveling, they’re proudly displayed in KODA’s Louisville office.
