Quilts for Kids Baton Rouge Chapter continues to provide a little extra comfort with donations of handmade quilts to patients at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.
“We hope the bright colors and warm feeling of these quilts wrap the children with love and comfort to make the hospital feel a bit more like home,” Lisa Porche, chapter leader said.
Quilters meet twice a month for a day of sewing and then take quilts home to complete for monthly deliveries to the hospital. The team makes about 15 to 20 quilts per month.
During the past five years, Quilts for Kids has donated more than 800 quilts to the Children’s Hospital with the help of 12 volunteers.
Currently, they've partnered with Allbrands, who provides support as well as a meeting room for workshops.
