MARTINS?FERRY - National nonprofit organization Quilts for Kids distributes comfort quilts to children with serious or life threatening illnesses through a huge network of volunteers. Candy Calvert founded a Quilts for Kids chapter in St Clairsville, OH after her own child had open heart surgery in 2010. "I read about Quilts for Kids in a magazine, and after sending in a few quilts I made, I was drawn to the idea of founding a local chapter. I thought it would be the perfect way to reach children in our community that need comfort while dealing with an illness or disease," explains Candy Calvert.
