MAHASKA COUNTY – The Get ‘R Done Quilting Group of Barnes City recently donated quilts of varying sizes to the Mahaska Health Partnership Hospice Serenity House.

The quilting group, affiliated with the United Methodist Church in Barnes City, has six members who donated their creations to various non-profits. Kristi Ehle said the reason the group chose to give quilts to the Serenity House was because several members had family and friends who benefitted from the residential hospice facility.

“This is such a beautiful facility and staff here truly are angels taking care of hospice patients as well as their families in the patient’s last days,” Ehle said. “We feel blessed to have the Serenity House in our community and we want to support it.”

Ehle said the quilting group has received a couple of grants to support their mission, and they take donations of cloth, batting and thread. Anyone interested in making a donation can call Ehle at 641-660-7985 or Church Member David Fry at 641-569-0187.
