GILBERT, W.Va. — In the town of Gilbert, a group of ladies are working quietly to help victims of child abuse in Logan and Mingo counties.
Valice Hatfield, owner of Valice’s Quilt Shop, serves as a Board member for the Logan County Child Advocacy Center Inc. She is also a very talented quilter who teaches classes in her shop at Ward Hardware in downtown Gilbert. For this year’s Prevent Child Abuse Month, Hatfield crafted a large West Virginia University quilt and presented it to Child Advocacy Center staff for a fund-raising raffle.
Hatfield also recruited a friend, Kewana Zeigler, who is working on a special bag for a future event.
Watch for locations in the two counties selling raffle tickets. Information will also be on the Logan County Child Advocacy Center Facebook page.
Prevent Child Abuse Month will be celebrated during the month of April.
