SPOKANE, Wash. - Kxly4 and STCU are honoring dedicated volunteers who truly make a difference with their time and resources to non-profit organizations.
Joyce Beach and her sewing group received a $1,000 grant to help with their project Monday.
“Ryan's Case for Smiles” custom-sews pillowcases for, and often with, young cancer patients at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital to let them enjoy a very simple creature comfort.
“They are providing warmth, the familiarity of something that is a child's own while they're in the hospital trying to heal,” said Traci McGlathery, STCU Community Relations Manager.
Joyce and her group dedicate more than 200 hours each year collecting pieces, designing and sewing pillowcases for children.
Thanks to STCU and the Volunteers County Project for their partnership in honoring those who are making a difference in our community.
