In Charlotte, North Carolina, more than 100 women and girls created 125 quilts for a special homeless shelter.
The shelter, called Emily’s House, is named after a 16-year-old girl who died of cancer in 2015.
And, when Heather Woolley heard Emily’s story, she put together a team of more than 150 women and girls to make blankets and quilts for the shelter.
Thanks to the efforts of the quilters, each family that transitions out of the home will leave with one of the blankets.
Heather says she the donation was made to honor Emily’s memory and is a warm reminder of Emily’s final wish: to spread love every day. (WCNC-TV)
