Quilt maker in need of help sending aid to flood victims

VANCLEAVE, MS (WLOX) - Back in August, Susan Eddy started an initiative to help those who were uprooted from their homes in the late summer Louisiana flooding.

"These poor children are laying there with no blanket, with no nothing to cuddle with, nothing to call their own and to love," said Eddy. "That's why I decided to do it."

Since then, Susan has sent hundreds of quilts to those in need, all while receiving other quilts from around the world at the same time.

"I've gotten quilts from all over the world. Three quilts came from Germany, three quilt tops came from South Africa. My first package that I got in was from Alaska," said Eddy.

But now, the quilts have stacked up and Eddy's having a hard time getting the final batch to the people who need them.

"About 150 of them left the house last week from a lady from Baton Rouge who lost her home. While she is repairing her house, she makes trips back and forth from Biloxi," said Eddy.

Eddy hopes someone can help her get all her quilts to their final destination.

"It's just a blessing that somebody's out there to do this, and I'm so happy for the people that have given," Eddy noted.
