The Extension Association of Quay County will be hosting a time for communities to come together to make a gesture of helping others by making "Care Bags" for patients. The event will be held 3 p.m.-7 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Quay County Fair Building.
Each "Care Bag" will contain items that will help make individual treatment time more comfortable: caps/ turbans/ or scarves, gloves, and non-slip socks; journals, game-books, notepads, pens, and pencils; small unscented lotion packets; lip-balm and lemon-drops/mints, calendars to keep track of appointments, and a note of encouragement.
Donations of items to place in bags as well as financial donations to purchase items and help with postage is encouraged. The goal is 100 bags.
