EHC Comfort Pillows 2021

Extension Homemakers Care

Members of the Arkansas County Extension Homemakers have made it their mission to empower individuals and families to improve their lives through continuing education, leadership development, and community service. EH club members donate their time and talent whether in cutting material, sewing, delivering, or simply supporting others to create the projects that enrich our community. 

EH members met at the Arkansas County Cooperative Extension Service for a day of fellowship, fun, food and helping others.  Thirty-four neck and knee comfort pillows were completed by EH members and delivered to DeWitt City Hospital with more to come.

A comfort pillow is small and can be used for an under-arm pillow, incision pillow, arm rest pillow, breast support pillow, knee pillow, or neck pillow.  They are made out of machine-washable fabric and stuffed with fiberfill for easy care.  A comfort pillow is just a little thing – that can remind others that someone cares!
