One of the most comforting items individuals affected by a natural disaster can receive is a quilt. Lynn Smith-Cronin, manager of the After-Hours Nurse Advice Hotline at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, reached out to Missouri Star Quilt Company (in partnership with Project Linus) to have 250 quilts donated to Kelsey-Seybold employees impacted by the catastrophic floods from Hurricane Harvey. These quilts are valued at more than $6,000, if sold in stores. Each quilt is unique, colorful and comforting – not to mention a beautiful piece of artwork. These quilts will be distributed to Kelsey-Seybold employees, that were affected by Harvey, in the coming weeks.
