Just as they have done since 1992, members of the Eastern Star Organization donated dozens of handmade quilts, blankets and pillow cases to the Ronald McDonald House Wednesday. Those items will be given to the people who stay at the house while their children are being cared for.
"Eastern Star is an organization that does good things for good people," said Annett Currie, a member of the organization. "We're a charitable organization and we have fun doing it."
Corpus Christi's Ronald McDonald House is expected to be a temporary home away from home for close to 1,200 people, folks who have children being treated at Driscoll Children's Hospital. On Wednesday, many of those families felt the warmth of someone who cares.
"We have a group that meets every month, gets together and spends anywhere from half a day to a whole day sewing," said Carlotta Fairchild, another Eastern Star member. "Sewing quilts, doing stuffed animals and having a good time."
Another token of the Eastern Star group were three big containers full of beverage pull tabs. They will be taken to a local recycler where the money collected from them will go to help defray some of the costs for the people who call the Ronald McDonald house home.
