Cloquet High School class creates pillowcases for Camp Heartland

Children whose lives have been impacted by HIV/AIDS will be dreaming a little sweeter these days when they attend camp at One Heartland (formerly known as Camp Heartland) in Willow River, thanks to a group of Cloquet High School students.
The “In Stitches” class of instructor Sue Hagberg recently designed and created brightly colored pillowcases for use by students who attend the camp. Fabric for the pillowcases was donated by the local quilt group, “Love You to Pieces,” whose members create quilts for every camper at One Heartland during their monthly meetings at the Cloquet Gospel Tabernacle.
One Heartland was founded in 1993 to provide children impacted by HIV/AIDS with a place to be themselves and enjoy the same type of activities as all other children, including swimming, sports, hiking, camping and climbing.
The camp facilities are also available for rental to other groups year round, and rental dollars go directly to One Heartland’s programs and services to help children and families in need.
