Thoughtful Donation

OGT’s Larned Collection Center in Larned, KS is the recipient of tied quilts from a mission started in 2012. Anika Polzin, along with her sister Afton Linderer, mother Lois Eye and her sister Diana Copeland and her daughter Teresa Copeland and family friend Thelma Fehrenbach decided to make quilts to share with people in need. Larned collection Center has received 215 quilts, 9 baby quilts, and cloth diapers made from t-shirts since 2012. Every year the ladies make more quilts and in 2016 they set a goal 100 and on Christmas day (this day was great because the whole family was there and could do it together!) boxed 100 quilts!! For 2017, they have set a goal of 150 quilts and so far have 35 quilts in process! The word has gotten out and people donate sewing fabric and supplies for the mission. Thank you for your mission and spirit to help others and to share with OGT. What an inspiration!
