In the spirit of giving, a group of faculty, staff, students, and Longview residents gathered to make red, white, and blue pillowcases. The pillowcases will be on display for the Veterans Day Celebration. The pillowcases will then be shipped to soldiers overseas. IC Quilters hope that this small act of kindness will encourage a soldier who is serving their country far from home.
