Quilts may be as iconic to Glouster as coal mining. In spite of COVID-19, the Glouster Project has not slowed down its work in stitching together support for their community.
The women from the Glouster Project are sewing 200 masks for Hocking Athens Perry Community Action (HAPCAP), The masks will be provided to local Meals on Wheels seniors, transit drivers, and staff at the Southeast Ohio Foodbank.
“We are so grateful to the Glouster Project for lending their time and skill to help protect our customers and staff during this time,” says Kelly Hatas, HAPCAP’s Executive Director. “When we called to ask this of them, they didn’t even hesitate. The community support in responding to this crisis has been absolutely amazing.”
HAPCAP would like to extend its sincerest thanks to Bobbie Dunham, Alice McKee, and Betsy Shamhart for all of their hard work.
