The article features Denise Dee of Sag Harbor, New York and the organization she founded called Cover Me With Love. The organization distributes homemade blankets and clothes to children in need. Denise learned how to crochet during her summer 2001 break as a high school guidance counselor. She wanted to make blankets for children in need and learned about students who were giving up their vacations to go on a church mission trip. At the St. Andrew's church bulletin in Sag Harbor, Dee mentioned her blankets for the needy idea and the project was born.
