Members of the Middlesex Department of Parks and Recreation quilting class recently donated several quilts to the Rural Infant Services Program (RISP) in Saluda.
“The staff and families of the Rural Infant Services Program extend their very special thanks to the Middlesex Department of Parks and Recreation quilting class for the beautiful quilts for our infants and toddlers,” said RISP director Kathy Phillips this week.
“The quilts they have made and donated are bringing much enjoyment to our local children. These very talented quilters have helped many young children with special needs, and the lovely quilts will continue to be a source of enjoyment as the children grow and develop,” said Phillips. “It is especially important for babies to have ‘tummy time’ during their early months to help their muscle development, and the quilts give them a place that is ideal for this activity. Thank you again for your kindness and for sharing your gifts and talents with us.”
