MOUNT VERNON — This year, a handful of students in Sabrina Pugh’s Family and Consumer Science class at Mount Vernon Middle School reached out to help children with serious illnesses.
Laura Cromley, a liaison between Quilts for Kids and The Flying Horse Farms in Morrow County helped Pugh get the project started.
The students first learned how to use a sewing machine and then, with the help of teacher aide Lydia Kennedy, pieced the quilts together, added the batting, backing and then machine quilted the blankets.
The three completed quilts will be given to campers at the Flying Horse Farms during their week of camp. Each camper receives a quilt for comfort at camp and then to take home with them.
