Quilter ‘pays it forward’ with covers for homeless

Katie Farrell
GEORGETOWN — Donna Lay believes in returning a helping hand.

When disaster struck in her own life last year, she received an outpouring of support. Lay was among those who lost their homes when an apartment complex in Georgetown caught fire last January. Lay and her son were temporarily displaced.

Watching “The Oprah Winfrey Show” about a month ago, Lay said she was struck with an inspiration for how to go about doing something to help others.

A guest on the show described how she had started a pajama drive for children living in group foster homes. As she watched, Lay, 47, said she was moved to start her own campaign — Quick Quilts for Kids. Her goal is to provide a blanket to every homeless child in the state."
