The North Louisiana Quilters Guild presents over 70 handmade quilts to CASA

MONROE, La. - Christmas is coming very early for some kids in the Twin Cities this year.

The North Louisiana Quilters Guild presented over 70 handmade quilts to CASA or known as Court Appointed Special Advocates Group.

The quilts are made by several women in the community and are given to children in the foster system.

Organizers say this is something very special to the children.

"So many of our kids that we serve move homes on average, three times during their duration in foster care, and with every move, they often lose their personal items," said Jere' Anthony, CASA.

"Children are our heart," said Carolyn Patrick, President of North Louisiana Quilters Guild."A lot of us have special reasons that we want to give to children, but children who don't have anything are special to us.

This annual event for the Guild and CASA.
