Members of the Mighty Pines and Paws 4-H Clubs recently presented handmade quilts and blankets to Canton-Potsdam Hospital’s birthplace and emergency departments.

The quilts were constructed by members and friends of the 4-H Clubs, including Mary Pike, Casey Caswell, Ruth Campbell, Sue Lanning, the Canton Central Life Skills Class, and Angela Quant of Marble Hill Designs.

“It’s heartwarming when members of our community join together for the purpose of helping others. Our patients within the Birthplace and the Emergency Department sincerely appreciate the thoughtfulness, especially young children who have a tendency to become nervous or anxious about their emergency room visit,” said Susan Smith, RN, Birthplace Interim Director.
