When Charlene Allen opened a box of items she'd stored in her office at Vital Aging for a couple years, she knew there was a quilt inside the container but she didn't know what it looked like. Turns out it was an unfinished quilt that came along with a request; that it would be finished.


Vital Aging of Williamsburg County has a quilting group of ladies that spend time at the center each week quilting each other's tops that will be given to family members, donated to soldiers, or charity events such as the agency's annual fund raising dinner. The ladies at the Kingstree Wellness Center jumped at the chance to finish the forgotten quilt and when they unfolded the piece they were pleasantly surprised.
