Those organizazions who have benefited from Connie’s donations are We care Arts, East Dayton Optimist, Carroll High School, St. Christopher’s Parish, The American Heart Association, Artemis, and Hobbies For Hospice to name a few.

The most beloved memories of quilting for Connie came in 2001 when she taught her 70 year old Mother to quilt. Connie’s Mother, Dawn was a long time survivor of Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Quilting became therapy for Dawn. When Connie’s mother passed away in 2010, Connie received many cards and condolences from people stating that her mother had made them a quilt. Quilting is and was a way for Connie and her Mom to give back to the community.
