The ladies at Cactus and Thorns/Needles and Pins donated 19 baby quilts and receiving blankets to the Sunshine Room, a project of the Live Oak County Child Welfare, Inc. CAT/NAP began working on this project in December 2012 after learning of the need for quilts and blankets for low income families with infants.

The receiving blankets are big enough to be used for bundling to calm fussy newborns. In addition to keeping babies warm in winter, quilts help babies develop eye/hand coordination as well as learning to crawl while playing with toys during floor time.

The Sunshine Room will also use these quilts for foster children in Live Oak and McMullen counties as something of their own that they can snuggle in and take with them when they leave to be reunited with their family or are adopted into a new family. CAT/NAP meets on the second Monday of the month at 6 p.m. at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Three Rivers.
