The majority of 90-year-olds are reaping the benefits of their effort, taking it easy and living life in the slow lane. But Bonnie Engle, 90, is busier than he’s ever been, creating quilts for poor families in Oregon.
The Hermiston resident began the practice 20 years ago as part of the Hermiston Police Department’s annual Holiday Express program, which delivers food and assistance to families over the holidays.
Since then, the dedicated senior has created almost 2,000 quilts for the police force.
Officers recognized her efforts by awarding her with a plaque.
This year, Bonnie has sewn over 100 handmade quilts to donate to those in need.
“It feels fantastic to be able to help them. “Thank you to the community for the donations of fabric; that’s really important,” Bonnie told ABC 7 News.
Congratulations, Bonnie! By sharing this story, you can help us offer a big thank you to this remarkable woman.
