Volunteers Add Warmth to Florida
...not more sunshine, but the warmth of love and compassion for seriously ill children. Lehigh Acres, FL, Chapter meets regularly for workshops, including Shelly Albert's group from River Hall.
For Shelly, it's personal. Years ago in Pennsylvania, her son was born prematurely, and she will never forget the kindness shown by volunteers who kept him cozy with volunteer-made blankets and pajamas.
Now she's giving back and contributing quilts to Golisano Children's Hospital in south Ft. Myers, the Hope Hospice, ACT shelter and anywhere else hand-made comfort is needed.
