Members of the Cutler Bay Policing Unit, Sergeant Chris Reed and Officer Eduardo Gaitan, and town Councilmember Sue Ellen Loyzelle on Dec. 23 delivered handmade quilts crafted by the group “Quilters Who Care” to six senior citizens in Cutler Bay.
Nieves Troya, Anne Gerwinski, Inez Bohler, Ana Cassidy, Joan Parke and Filomena Meran all received quilts.
“The Quilters Who Care contacted the police department and they donated six quilts,” said Councilmember Loyzelle. “I reached out through some of my contacts to identify seniors in need. I delivered four quilts with the police and then Mary Ann of the Cutler Bay Police Department delivered the other two because I couldn’t make it due to my work schedule.”
Loyzelle said that the seniors who received the colorful quilts were grateful for the special hand crafted gifts that showed someone cared.
“It was inspirational and they were so appreciative,” Loyzelle said. “They each picked their favorite color and it worked out great. They just loved them and decided it was a wonderful gesture. It was really nice.”
