Warm quilts, tempting chocolates and holiday décor will be on offer this Wednesday, Nov. 15, when Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital holds its annual quilt and holiday sale.

Guests at the sweet and cozy event can browse a selection of See’s Candies, handcrafted quilts and a variety of nutcrackers and holiday décor. All proceeds will go to the Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital Auxiliary to fund hospital equipment and scholarships for students pursuing a medical career.

Many of the quilts on offer were handcrafted and donated by Bev Barcroft, who also donates lap quilts to patients who are receiving ambulatory infusion therapy.

“With ambulatory infusion, patients come to a clinic on the hospital campus to receive intravenous medications, such as antibiotics and chemotherapy,” said Celeste O’Brien, volunteer services coordinator at the hospital. “The quilt helps keep them warm during the treatment.”

“Bev puts so much labor and love into creating these beautiful quilts, knowing that her efforts will bring comfort to others,” O’Brien added. “We appreciate her so much, and also those who purchase the quilts, helping to support our hospital programs.”

The quilt sale will run from 8 am to 5 pm in the cafeteria of the hospital at 3043 NE 28th Street.

For information, contact O’Brien at 541-996-7132.
