Moroni royalty spearheading project to make quilts for Primary Children’s
By Daniela Vazquez
MORONI—Moroni City Queen Kailee Burgess organized a service project to help comfort kids who have a long stay at Primary Children’s Hospital.
“I was considering a couple of ideas,” Kailee said. “Then, I saw an announcement at my church that was saying Primary Children’s needed new blankets, so I decided I would do just that.”
Kailee, along with one of her attendants Janey Christensen, met at the Moroni City Hall early on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 17 to tie quilts for sick kids in the hospital.
The two girls invited fifth- to eighth-graders to help with the cause. Although not many showed up, she did have her younger sister, eighth-grader Brooklyn Burgess supporting her in her efforts to give back.
Karen Burgess, Kailee’s mother, was also there to help with the quilts. She says the girls plan to deliver the blankets with the addition of a matching stuffed animal to the children after the first of the year.
Kailee says she believes in doing good deeds, but having fun while doing them.
“It makes you want to help rather than making it feel like a chore,” she said.
Her next service project is aimed to take place during the month of love, in a Father-Daughter Valentines tea party.
