First grader sews 100 pillowcases for charity

    MONTOUR FALLS—B.C. Cate first grade student Reagan Reese made 100 pillowcases to donate to charity as part of the 100th day of school in the Odessa-Montour district.
    Reagan's mother, Jenny Reese, explained every year the students are asked to do something with 100 for the 100th day of school. She said she read about a drive to make pillowcases for charity in "American Patchwork & Quilting" magazine and asked if Reagan wanted to do that for the 100th day of school. Reagan began making the pillowcases, with help from her mother cutting the fabric, in September. Jenny said her daughter finished all 100 cases last Monday.
    Jenny said in order to do the project, she called around to fabric shops asking for donations of materials. She said that upon contacting O'Susannah's Quilt and Gift Shop, the store agreed to donate all of the fabric Reagan needed to make the pillowcases. Reagan said what she liked most about the project was sewing the covers.
    Jenny said the pillowcases will be going to Arnot Ogden Medical Center Pediatric Unit, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Seneca View Nursing Home, and Schuyler Head Start. The "American Patchwork & Quilting" program that inspired Jenny called for a One Million Pillowcase Challenge, calling on people to make the covers and donate them to area charities. As of this weekend, the official count on that drive was 386,651 pillowcases made. Jenny said she would submit Reagan's total to the count as well.
