03.23.2022 Area Quilters Warm Residents’ Hearts and Homes – McLean Quilters Unlimited made a well-received gift of hand made quilts to residents at Mary Marshall Assisted Living as well as other area organizations. Mary Marshall Executive Director Divina Alston expressed her gratitude on behalf of residents in a recent article in the Arlington Connection: “The quilts…truly touched my heart and the hearts of the residents. To think of the craftsmanship and hours it took to complete each quilt makes them extra special. Knowing the love and care that was put into them, brought out a lot of smiles. The residents were thrilled to go to their private rooms to place their quilt on their beds or chairs to brighten their living space.”
McLean Quilter Unlimited donated a total of 60 handmade quilts to the residents of Mary Marshall. This is just one of the philanthropic projects that members undertake each year.
