A recent donation from a quilting guild is keeping kids cozy.
On Tuesday, Cabin Branch Quilters dropped off quilts to Action in Community Through Service (ACTS), a non-profit based out of Dumfries.
The donation is a regular practice for the quilting guild.
When the supply at ACTS runs low throughout the year, Cabin Branch Quilters brings cotton or flannel pieces that are typically 40-by-50 inches.
Children in need are able to choose a quilt.
“That is their quilt for keeps,” Cabin Branch Quilters member Caroline Billingsley. “They get to take that when and wherever they go.”
Cabin Branch Quilters, which was established 30 years ago, seeks to promote quilting in Prince William County.
It meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of every month at Lake Ridge Baptist Church, 12450 Clipper Drive.
The organization is currently selling tickets for a raffle quilt that will be featured at the annual quilt show in April.
Proceeds from the raffle quilt will benefit the Prince William County / Manassas Boys and Girls Clubs.
Anyone who would like to purchase tickets may contact a Cabin Branch Quilters member.
