DONATION: Local Heroes & Stars and Stitches Project

16 Nov

On Wednesday, Sept. 21, Wrapped Up in Sports attended the weekly care package drive organized by Local Heroes, a 501(c)3 that collects donations to send to our troops overseas. They have met every Wednesday for the past 6 years and have sent 14,150 care packages to date.

As part of our Stars & Stitches project, 39 quilts and star blocks were selected by family members. They loved each and every quilt that was available and can’t wait to send the star blocks to their relatives overseas.

Many thanks to our volunteer quilters and Squanicook Colonial Quilt Guild for the quilts they have donated to this very special project!

WHITMAN – The art of quilting has run in Kate McCullough’s family for years but for her, it ended up being more than just a hobby.

Surprising both her peers and herself, McCullough put her quilting skills to good use, establishing her own non-profit organization, Wrapped Up in Sports, in 2009. The organization makes quilts and donates them to charities and homeless children around the region…
