A Precious Gift

There is nothing better than a handmade gift. Something the maker has put careful thought into and has given up their valuable time to craft. You know you are loved when the gift is placed in your hands.

Recently, we were blessed to receive over 70 handmade quilts from a group of quilters from Franklin, NC. Chris Eichner spearheaded the effort and personally delivered the quilts to Crossnore, along with her fellow quilters, Phyllis Garrett, Linda Legrand, and Sherrie Peeler. As she presented the quilts to Brett Loftis, CEO, and Caroline Hart, Chief Advancement Officer, Chris told us that many quilters were involved in this labor of love. From the cutting and piecing to the actual sewing, it took many hands many hours to finish them all.

After the photo opportunities, the women sat with Caroline, Courtney Lane, Outreach Coordinator, and Logan Thrasher, Campus Pastor and shared stories about the quilts, their lives, and their testimonies. Pastor Logan prayed a special prayer of blessing over the quilts and the children who will receive them, as well as over Chris, her friends, and their precious gift.

A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.    Proverbs 18:16

Racism is Trauma

Crossnore School & Children’s Home exists to be a sanctuary for children and their families and racism destroys sanctuary. Racism is trauma and is part of systemic community trauma that has long term negative impacts on people and communities of color. Crossnore believes that black lives matter, and we are committed to building an anti-racist organization and supporting the development of racial equity in our communities.
