In September the Pregnancy Resource Center drew the winners of the Celebrate Life Raffle. Jessica Hawkins was the winner of the unique batik quilt that was made by the Carbondale and Glenwood Quilting guilds and hand quilted by Carol Spinniken. Jessica, in the true spirit of giving, gave the quilt back to the PRC, which in turn has given it to the pregnancy center in Traverse City, Mich., Spinniken’s local community, where they will also raffle the quilt to raise funds for their organization. The Pregnancy Resource Center of Glenwood and Rifle raised nearly $11,000, which goes to support anyone in our community with pregnancy related needs.
