Havreite seeks to send quilts to Ukrainian children

Havre native Pamela Emard has sewn nine handmade quilts to give to children in Ukraine suffering from the effects of Russia's invasion, but is now trying to find a way to get them there.
Emard said her mother was a first-generation immigrant to American and their family is primarily of Hungarian and Czech descent, so war in that part of the world hits her a little closer to home than most, so she said she immediately started giving money to relief efforts.
Within a few months she had donated $700 in total, but she didn't feel like her heart was in it.
"It was just money," she said.
