Financial Assistant Sherry Nguyen and some of her colleagues from Commonwealth Medicine’s Disability Evaluation Services wanted to give back to the community while enjoying each other’s company. So they started crafting handmade quilts for the guests of Sherry’s House, a Ronald McDonald House-type facility that provides no-cost lodging for child cancer patients, their families and caregivers.
