Members of a Missouri community started early on lending a holiday helping hand, and they are doing it with sewing. Cape Girardeau has participated in the Ugly Quilt for the Homeless event since 1966. The event made hundreds of quilts, all of which will be donated to the homeless in various areas of Missouri. Watch the video below to learn more about the event!
