MAHASKA COUNTY – The Helping Hands Quilt Group recently donated 48 quilts of various sizes to benefit Mahaska Health Partnership patients at the Hospice Serenity House and the Cancer Care and Infusion Center.

According to member Linda Binns of Oskaloosa, the group meets one a month at a house owned by Central Reformed Church in Oskaloosa. “It’s really a group project, with some members sewing, some cutting and some getting the quilt tops together with batting and backing.”

“It’s about our passion for quilting and giving to those who could really benefit by a unique gift from the heart that is made with love,” Binns explained. “We truly enjoy getting together and it brings us great joy to know that our work is appreciated and, in a small way, we are able to touch so many lives.”
