They ask that donated quilts and fleece blankets be new or made with new materials and be sturdy enough to go through industrial washing and sterilizing cycles. The quilts can be store-bought or handmade and should be 60 inches by 80 inches and have neutral or patriotic themes.

Donations can be dropped off at any Gate City Bank location during regular business hours all month long.
