Each blanket is marked with a special hand-sewn tag. Since its inception, Quinnie’s Covers has donated nearly 900 blankets to local hospitals and other service providers across the country. “We just want families to know that they are loved, that they’re prayed for and that someone cares,” said Nila Barrett of Lady’s Island.
