Quilts

Through a personal connection, Western Wisconsin Health Foundation received over 1,000 quilt squares last fall 2019. With the knitted baby hats and sacs program WWH has, they were able to reach out to all of their knitters and crocheters to see if anyone would be available to do good with all of these squares! Kathy Miller and Pauline Wangen coordinated these squares with Peace Lutheran Church to do lots of good. Volunteers came together to sort the squares by color and then get to work! They were able to put together 24 scarves for Greenfield Elementary, 12 scarves for Viking Middle School, 18 scarves for Turning Point and 6 afghans for Western Wisconsin Health patients. What an amazing gift. These volunteers gave countless hours of time and were able to deliver these beautiful pieces of art just last week. On behalf of the many lives you will touch because of these heartfelt gifts, our community sends a huge thank you to Peace Lutheran Church.
