Lincoln makes quilts for Aurora pediatric unit
One of Lincoln Middle School's sixth-grade teams made comfort quilts for the Aurora Health Care pediatric unit during the school’s Community Contribution Month. Representatives from Aurora visited Lincoln this morning to talk to the students about their unit, and the students presented eight quilts to the hospital staff.
Upon receiving the quilts, Aurora manager of patient experience Sue DeRose shared that at Aurora, they keep the words of Maya Angelou in mind: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” She continued, “these quilts are going to be that special thing that these babies will grow up with and parents will have that special comfort because of what you did and how you made them feel by creating these quilts for them, so thank you so very much!”
Special thank you goes out to Lincoln sixth-grade counselor Erin Waynes and longtime KUSD mentor Beverly “Bunny” Stoops for their guidance throughout the quilt-making process and for assembling the students’ pieces together into eight beautiful quilts!
