Ben Chambers Quilt Project

Grandma Besecker & Miss Besecker

Miss Besecker’s 3rd grade class at Benjamin Chambers
Elementary School
has auctioned their third hand-made
quilt, with a fourth now in the works.

Benefiting Charity from the Beginning

Many of the quilts to-date have benefited charitable causes. Miss B’s class works with her grandmother (“Grandma B”) to practice measuring, design, cooperation and geometry skills, during quilt planning and construction.


2019 Benefactor & Mission
Chambersburg-based ReliAvail I.T. Company purchased this year's quilt and is spearheading the 2019 Benefit Chambersburg campaign to promote Downtown Chambersburg; the campaign aims to raise funds and awareness of the community, charitable, and art movements that bring generations together and make a difference for children and families in our area

We seek to inspire a new generation of community-minded young people who will strive to improve the world around them.

2019 Beneficiaries

This year's Ben Chambers quilt was auctioned in Spring 2019 to benefit a school family recently affected by a house fire. Proceeds from the quilt auction are helping the family to rebuild.

Follow-on Fundraiser

ReliAvail I.T. Co. is now donating the quilt to the 2019 Benefit Chambersburg campaign, in support of two area charities. 

100% of proceeds from your votes will benefit charity, and the charity that raises the most money will also receive the 2019 Ben Chambers quilt.
