Students honor wounded warriors

Local elementary students teamed up to lend a hand to wounded warriors.

Students at Lincoln Irving School in Moline, Illinois began painting quilt squares which a local quilter will assemble.

The quilt will then be donated to a wounded warrior program.  The project also teaches the kids their youth shouldn’t stop them from helping someone else.

“You know, children grow up sometimes self-centered as we do, and we want them to understand there are people they can help even being a child; that they can help minister to someone else in need,” said teacher Denise Cross.

The quilts should be completed by the end of this summer.
