Let’s help the Center for Courageous Kids!

The Center for Courageous Kids has an urgent need for quilts and pillowcases and KEHA is planning to help address this need!  Twin size quilts sized 65” x 90” are requested.  There are no fabric restrictions – just durable and washable. Bright colors and patterns are loved.  CCK also needs standard size pillow cases.  Cotton is preferred and colors – both bold and pastel – work well.  KEHA will collect quilts and pillowcases at the 2015 KEHA State Meeting.  Any donations should be brought to the registration area.  Members are encouraged to attach a notecard with the donor’s name, county and address to donated items.  A representative from the Center for Courageous Kids will attend the KEHA Awards Breakfast to receive the donations.  Click here for a flyer with additional details.

Congratulations to Pat Carter from Crittenden County.  She designed the winning bookmark in the contest to create a new reading rewards bookmark for KEHA
