With the help of adults, the children and youth will be designing, sewing, and ironing quilts. These quilts will be donated to The Robyn's Nest. Parents can drop children off or stay for the fun! To date, the Shepherd family has worked together to create over 3600+ quilts for the Robyn's Nest (a Children's Hospital affiliation serving children in foster care), the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center, and for La Causa (a crisis center for children ages 0-12).  Our hope is to resume this fall to create quilts for children at The Robyn's Nest and LaCausa, & for patients at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center. There are many opportunities to serve! We would love for volunteers to join us on Monday afternoons as we prepare the quilts for our Kidz Konnection students to knot (no sewing experience required).
