Homemade Quilts for Victims

Homemade quilts for domestic violence victims. Nearly ten quilters donate 29 homemade quilts to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

"When we arrive sometimes we have people just standing out with just being able to escape with what they have on their back," explains Sheriff Larry Mincks. "And domestic violence victims, there are a lot of children involved and a lot of these blankets with Mickey Mouse."

The women donated their time, money, and supplies to make these quilts. Log Cabin Country Quilts in Harmar donated all the machine work.
"It's such a great feeling to give back and we've all experienced that feeling as we work. We work harder when we are working on our charity quilts than we do when we're working on our own projects so we have fun and we enjoy what we're doing." explains quilter Mitch Miller.

The Sheriff's Office says they're honored. The quilts will be used for victims of domestic violence or even fires who may have to be out in the cold without anything. "We will distribute them among our officers so they all will have at least one or two in their cruisers and they will be able to present them to people that are in need."

ONeill Center donates their space and help to the ladies each month and are honored to be a part of it all.
