Healthy Families program attended the monthly meeting of the Yankee Pride Quilt Guild of Pittsfield.

“Last week Becky Krysiak from the Healthy Families program, a program of Child Care of the Berkshires, attended the monthly meeting of the Yankee Pride Quilt Guild of Pittsfield. This wonderful group began donating beautiful baby quilts to the program 9 years ago. This group, with their community-minded spirit, wanted to provide a way of welcoming new little members to the community, and the quilts are provided as a “Welcome Baby’ gift to all new parents in the program. The members of the Guild made it their goal to donate 1,000 quilts to the program, and this month they made that magic number!

Not only did they make their goal, they surpassed it by 10!! Their amazing quilts are simply beautiful, each one unique with a variety of designs, colors and fabrics that allow for quilts to be selected that fit the personality of each family. We are so appreciative of their time, creative efforts, and obvious care they put in to the making of each and every quilt. Over the past 9 years they have welcomed and supported many new babies in Berkshire County. Thank you, Yankee Pride Quilt Guild, for your very generous spirit!”
