A Genoa-area woman blanketed the community with warm wishes this holiday season.

The Genoa-Harmony Fire Department shared a woman who wants to remain anonymous felt compelled to start making quilts and wanted people to know they were thought of for Christmas.

With help from a friend, she made the quilts, and they asked the Genoa-Harmony Fire Department to help deliver because of their own limitations.

The fire department said it was a pleasure to help with a project and that it was a blessing to have a person thinking of so many others.
