GC students quilt for community service with Cherry Glade Mennonite Church

Recently, several Garrett College students participated in a joint community service project in coordination with Cherry Glade Mennonite Church held on Martin Luther King Day at the McHenry campus of the College. Student peer leaders, men’s basketball players, and women’s basketball players, assisted with the service project and attributed to a total of four quilts being created.

The quilts that were made were shipped to Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, where they will be processed and sent to countries around the world to aid in situations of crisis, such as natural disasters and war. Last year, MCC sent 51,062 comforters to the following countries: Jordan, Bosnia, Herzegovnia, Korea, Ethiopia, and more. According to organizers of the project, “it is a tangible way of sharing love and compassion, reminding people around the world that their needs are not forgotten.”
