One hundred Northland kids will have a new way to stay warm this fall because of the actions of crafty volunteers in a Douglas County organization.
A small group of women in Superior's Mariner Mall created quilts for kids in crisis Thursday afternoon along with an organization called Douglas County Home & Community Education. Member Sue Hendrickson told Eyewitness News "local vendors and quilt shops donate materials and we put them together and make small quilts for kids."
The quilts will go to kids in shelters, hospitals and emergency rooms.
Hendrickson expected 50 quilts to be made Thursday, and said at least 50 more would be donated before summer.
Hendrickson said the organization has been making quilts for kids for about 15 years.
