More than 600 new, handmade quilts are ready to be distributed to the American Red Cross to help those who were left with nothing.

The quilters say they wanted to use their hobby to help people in need.

“We hope they receive a lot of comfort, and since these families lost everything, we hope these quilts will bring them some comfort again,” said Jacque Schneider with Firehouse Quilts of Colorado.
