HELP make hospital stays as pleasant as possible for chronically ill children. Join ConKerr Cancer (Riley Hospital) in their mission to brighten the lives of sick children in hospitals through homemade pillowcases. Making a pillowcase is easy, rewarding and it can have a positive impact on a child in need. You can help by making a cheerful pillowcase, donate fabric or other sewing materials, or donate funds to help in the purchase of supplies. Sharynn’s Quilt Box is a designated drop off point for finished pillowcases. If you want to participate, drop by today for further details and a free pattern for the pillowcase along with directions on laundering and packaging. If you can’t make a pillowcase and want to help, stop by for information on donating materials and/or money for materials.
