Arcadia Woman Makes Quilt For Injured CCSO Deputy

Collier County Sheriff's Office Cpl. Maria Raley, above left, displays a quilt delivered to her Friday by Sgt. Marcus Carter. Helen Vickers, below right, of Arcadia made the quilt for Cpl. Raley, who is recovering after being struck by a fleeing suspect’s car in Immokalee on Aug. 9. Vickers said she makes quilts and gives them away to people who may need some comfort. Vickers said the quilt is her way of showing appreciation for Cpl. Raley’s service to the community. Thank you, Ms. Vickers.
