The Women’s Honor Farm sewing program at the San Luis Obispo County Jail has donated more than 120 baby quilts, 100 bibs and 50 baby beanies they made to San Luis Obispo ALPHA, an organization that gives pregnancy and early parenting support to families.
“We serve about 500 families a year countywide, so you can imagine the blankets we distribute,” said Patti Fox, executive director of ALPHA. “This is a wonderful program for the women to participate in and feel like they are making a difference.”
The Women’s Honor Farm sewing program, which began three years ago, has grown and produced many donations including more than 1,000 quilts, afghans, scarves, beanies, super capes and teddy bears, according to a news release from the county Sheriff’s Office.
All items are made from donated materials and fabrics.
