ESPERANCE, N.Y. – Quilters in Esperance have been cutting fabric into small pieces for weeks, and plan to give one away to everyone that comes into the shop with an edible donation.

Local food pantries' shelves have taken a big hit, after providing holiday meals for Thanksgiving and assisting many devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

'Quiltbug,' located at 169 Main Street in Esperance, organized the event with the hopes of restoring local food pantries to full fruition by Christmas.

Anyone who brings a non-perishable food item worth at least $1 dollar to the 'Quiltbug' will receive a “fat quarter,” one of the small pieces of fabric.

The donation drive and “fat quarter” distribution runs during Friday, November 23rd and Saturday, November 24th, at the store's location on Main Street.

The shop will also be collecting gift cards to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims.
