    Default Need help, far and wide

    I, and my company, have been selected to head up a memorial quilt project for fallen firefighter Scott Tanksley.

    We will be collecting patches and t-shirts from nationwide fire stations, emts, police and military, etc to be sewn together into a quilt to be presented to his family.

    If you or anyone you know would like to donate, please contact me for the address to send the patch/t-shirt to.

    Please feel free to share this with anyone and everyone, as I need to collect these in the next 3-4 months in order to work on the quilt and have it ready. They are hoping to present it on the 1 year anniversary of his death 2/10/15


    Thanks in advance!

    Oh I wish I had something to send you. But I don't know any firefighters or EMTs. My son is going to school to be a firefighter but he doesn't have any shirts or patches.

    Sounds like a great project though.

    I used to be a paramedic with a fire department, but am sorry to say that I no longer have anything I could send to you.

    What a great way to honor a firefighter...

    My dh is a firefighter. He works away but when he gets home I'll ask him if he can get a shirt from the local department. He should be home within the next five weeks!
