Hospital Support


Al Kader Shriners formed this Club to help support and publicize the Shriners hospitals and the fraternity. Anyone that supports the hospital and their mission is welcome to join and work with them. The club participates in parades with their special float, community events, and any place that they can offer information about the hospital system. They are easily recognizable by their vests and other identity wear and their enthusiasm.

Hospital Sewing


Ladies of the Sewing Committee work at the Portland Hospital every Tuesday in their beautiful sewing room with the million-dollar view. They provide items for the patients including wheelchair bags, shorts for tests, belonging bags, pillowcases and matching lap quilts, and many specialty items. Sometimes they are asked to do repairs or to design a special item. The most treasured item that they produce is the “Transition Quilt” presented to a patient as they graduate out of the Shriners system. Opportunities are available for ladies that may not be able to work directly at the hospital, as well. At-home sewing is gratefully accepted and there are groups that meet in the evening or at other locations to sew, as well.

As the expense of shipping items to the Shriners Children’s Hospital-Honolulu is prohibitive, our members donate gift cards (Walmart, Target, VISA, etc.) that can be used by the hospital to purchase what they need. Individuals, Clubs and Units make generous donations every year.

Below are tried and true instructions for making much needed items at the Shriners Children’s Hospital-Portland. We hope you enjoy making these useful things.
