MOORESVILLE, NC (July 2, 2013) – Several members of the Women’s, Children’s & Maternity Services department of Lake Norman Regional Medical Center accepted, with much appreciation, a quilt donated to Project Linus, a partnership between first graders at Woodland Heights Elementary School and the Centerpiece Quilters Guild in Mooresville.
The first graders raised money to purchase fabric for their quilts by doing chores and jobs for their families and friends. Each first grader memorized and illustrated a nursery rhyme, and the members of the quilt guild transferred the children’s illustrations to fabric and sewed a total of ten quilts to donate to Project Linus in 2013.
Colleen Thiaikill, from Project Linus, presented the quilt to Marie Marks, BSN, RNC-OB, Director of Women’s and Children’s Services, Jennifer Williamson, RN, Women’s Services, and Kathy Varnado, RNC, Clinical Coordinator for Women’s Services.
Project Linus is a national volunteer organization that is committed to donating quilts to children. Its mission is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need.
