Thank you Lake Quilters and Bee members for the quilts, bears and other items donated this year. The Charity Committee was able to distribute over 650 items to agencies in Bedford and Franklin counties. Your generosity is so greatly appreciated!

Bedford County received 66 bears, 10 bibs, 32 pillow pals, 36 pillowcases, 5 chemo caps, 8 knit caps, 29 lap quilts, 26 bed quilts, 17 totes, 6 toiletry bags, 6 wheelchair bags, 1table Christmas tree, and two huge grocery bags full of toiletries.

Franklin County received 81 bears, 15 baby quilts, 38 pillow pals, 25 pillowcases, 10 chemo caps, 13 knit caps, 12 lap quilts, 32 bed quilts, 6 totes, and 6 wheelchair bags. The Veteran’s Hospital received 7 quilts for women veterans and 80 wheelchair bags.

How heartwarming it is to see donated, down-sized, and inherited scrap bag fabric turned into quilts and bears that bring comfort to our neighbors in their time of need.
