Long Island Quilts for Kids, a nonprofit organization based in Patchogue that creates and delivers homemade quilts to help comfort hospitalized children – recently donated 60 quilts to Winthrop University Hospital's Child Life Program.
The quilts were donated through the Downy Touch of Comfort program, which, in partnership with Quilts for Kids, helps provide comforting quilts and a touch of home to hospitalized children. These brand new quilts are handmade by volunteers using donated materials, and are currently being disseminated to children who are battling chronic illnesses during their hospital stay.
Patchogue resident and Long Island chapter coordinator Carrie Davis presented the quilts to Winthrop on behalf of Quilts for Kids.
