The St. Peter’s Hospital Breast Center has received a generous $500 donation from Nancy Larrow. The money will be used for gasoline gift cards to be distributed to patients of the center who are in need.
Larrow raised the money by creating and raffling off a special quilt with the theme of breast cancer awareness. Using materials donated by two acquaintances, Larrow started the quilt in January by cutting material into pieces and sewing everything together.
Larrow said she made the quilt in honor of her late mother, Frances Maynard, who battled breast cancer for five years, before passing away in 1989.
In April, Larrow sent the quilt to be quilted together using a daisy stitch, in order to match the quilt’s daisy design.
Once the quilt was completed, Larrow in September started a raffle. On December 1, she drew a winner from all of the purchased raffle tickets.
Larrow raised $500 through the raffle, and on December 7 donated the entire sum to St. Peter’s Hospital Breast Center.
Many thanks to Larrow for her kind, compassionate, and thoughtful gift!
