Supporter Spotlight: Kay Coffin

Sometimes all it takes to make a big difference is spreading the word. Years ago Delta Faucet invited us to their employee volunteer fair. It was the beginning of many beautiful relationships, including our dear friend, Kay Coffin.

Kay’s daughter, Jody Long, is a Delta employee. Kay is an excellent seamstress. Jody thought there must be a way for Kay to get involved. Sewing Class with Ms. Kay was born.

Kay marched to Coburn Place with her supplies in hand filled with a stubborn yet loveable determination to teach the Coburn Place adults to sew.

A handful of students showed up. And kept coming back to learn what Ms. Kay had to teach them. They made tote bags, pillows and Christmas tree skirts. They made repairs to their clothes. More importantly they made friends.

Kay is battling some health challenges and hasn’t been able to hold class. We miss you, Kay! We’re sending so much love and many prayers. And big thanks for stitching together such useful skills with wonderful memories.

 

Jody and Kay enjoyed hanging out with
Rowdie at the supporter appreciation event.
