MRHS Fashion Classes Design and Donate Patchwork Quilts to Veterans
The bundles, made with appreciation and love, were distributed to veterans at the Holiday Care Center in Toms River as holiday gifts. Mrs. Fitzgerald reported that the veterans were very pleased and loved the gifts, thanking the students for their hard work and efforts.
The students worked diligently on the quilts for approximately 8 weeks.
Every year Mrs. Fitzgerald includes service-learning projects into the fashion program. In addition to the quilt and pillow project for veterans, previous projects have included making skirts for women in Swaziland, Africa and making teddy bears to put in Easter baskets for less fortunate children.
