Three students were recognized for their participation in “Quilting for a Cause” at the most recent Hardyston Board of Education meeting. Derek Yannetta, Noah Eastburn, and Johnny Posser are the three students that have participated in making the quilts.

Quilting for a Cause makes quilts for the homeless and other organizations. The volunteer students of Mrs. Kervatt’s elective cycle art class have helped sew the quilt tops. The quilt tops will be sent to the Borden Avenue Veterans Residence in Queens, New York, to keep the veterans warm.

Hardyston Media Specialist Sue Ploch is a member of Quilting for a Cause. Ploch told the Advertiser that she started five years ago and the organization has sent quilts to homeless shelters, to places around the United States, including places where natural disasters have occurred such as hurricanes, flooding due to storms, and organizations where members are in need.

Derek Yannetta, one of the eighth-grade students, attended the Board of Education meeting. Noah Eastburn and Johnny Posser were not present but all three were celebrated at the meeting.

Quilting for a Cause was founded by a woman named Rosemary Phalon. The quilt store is located in Pequannock, New Jersey.
