... you betcha!
On one side of town, sitting in a sterile white hospital room, is a child, battling cancer.On the other side of town, a 20+ year member of the St Charles, IL WOTM Chapter 512 stands in quilt shop and reads a flyer in the window that brightly states “ConkerrCancer”, “Giving Sick Kids a reason to smile, one pillowcase at a time”, and an idea is sparked. With a bright pillowcase in hand, that idea was shared with her board of officers and at that moment, the fun began. With a goal of 1 pillowcase per member,and 1 to grow on, the Women of Chapter 512 took on the challenge of making 754 hospital rooms a lot more colorful. They gathered donations of fabric, logged in sewinghours and donated money. They reached out to every facet of the St Charles Moose Family Center #1368 including; The Moose Riders, Moose Legion, Loyal Order and Fun Bunch for support. Every member put in the effort to help in some fashion. They have shopped, sorted, cut, pinned, sewn, ironed, trimmed and folded an amazing total of 840, and in just over 2 months!! Making this one of the most heartfelt and involved community service project taken on by the St Charles Chapter 512. It is with great ambition, that they fully intend on exceeding this goal in upcoming years, with the help of the lodge and community!
