Gretchen Carlson from the AV Hospice Society chats with Grade 3 and 4 students from Wood Elementary School about two quilts the students created for residents at Ty Watson House Hospice

Students quilt for Ty Watson House

A group of Grade 3 and 4 students from Wood Elementary School donated two quilts to the Ty Watson House.

A group of Grade 3 and 4 students from Wood Elementary School were at Ty Watson House on April 15 to donate two handmade quilts to the hospice.

The students, along with help from parents, grandparents and retired teachers from the community, took about a week to complete the quilts.

Teacher Kristine Clark said she usually does a pioneer and community unit every two years with her students and this year is the second time a quilt has been donated to the hospice.

“We were wondering what to do with the quilt we made last time and a care worker suggested donating it to Ty Watson House,” said Clark. “So we called them up to see and they were thrilled and made us promise to come back in the future.”

Volunteers at the hospice were grateful for the quilts and said residents will use them to keep warm.
