Recipients of the group's past donations include, among others, local citizens who are having health problems or hard times financially; the cancer drive; Cystic Fibrosis; the Gospel Mission; the Salvation Army; the Cherokee County Fund Drive; and overseas missions.The group has made a variety of quilts, including hand embroidery, pieced, and whole cloth. A Millenium quilt was hand quilted by the Guild Committee.
The 2005 quilts, made with donated material, were donated to the Gospel Mission in Sioux City.
In 2006, the drawing for the raffle winner was held on Sunday October 8, at a mass held on the Maryhill church grounds, where the church structure was blown down in the storm of August 1, 2006. People from the Maryhill community , neighboring communities, and even across the nation, purchased raffle tickets. The winner of this year's quilt was Annamarie Lickiss of Cherokee, who purchased her ticket from Herta Rupp of Cherokee. When asked her plans for the quilt, Lickiss said , "It's going right on my bed."
The Maryhill Guild members thank everyone who participated in this year's quilt project and helped make it a success, with special thanks to Melander's in Cherokee, the Central Trust Bank in Quimby, the Marcus Fair, Marcus News, Chronicle Times, Creative Cutters, and the Cherokee Sesquicentennial Committee.
