This year, a 90-year-old woman makes over 100 handmade quilts for those in need.

The majority of 90-year-olds are enjoying the fruits of their labor while relaxing and taking things slowly. But 90-year-old Bonnie Engle, who makes quilts for underprivileged families in Oregon, is busier than ever.

The Hermiston resident started the custom 20 years ago as a component of the annual Holiday Express program run by the Hermiston Police Department, which provides food and assistance to families during the holiday season.

The committed senior has made nearly 2,000 quilts for the police since then.

Officers presented her with a plaque in appreciation of her efforts.

For those in need, Bonnie has sewn more than 100 handmade quilts this year.

It feels great to be able to assist them. Bonnie told ABC 7 News, “Thank you to the community for the donations of fabric; that’s really important.

You can help us sincerely thank this remarkable woman by telling this story, Bonnie, so congrats on that.
