Inmate makes BSU quilt for charity



















(Inmate John Gout will be present when the quilt is presented to the
Ronald McDonald House Thursday.)


BOISE, Idaho. - A South Idaho Correctional Institution inmate is helping raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. Inmate John Gout has made a blue and orange Boise State University (BSU) quilt out of old prison blue jeans and worn out orange offender transport jumpsuits; and members of the BSU football team have autographed it.

The quilt will be given to the Ronald McDonald House on Thursday and Gout will be on present for the presentation.

Under the supervision of prison laundry officers, Gout started making quilts out of scraps two years ago while working in SICI's laundry room. Since then, Gout has donated more than 25 quilts to variety of organizations. In addition to the Bronco quilt, Gout will present the Ronald McDonald House with seven other quilts.

"We are able to fulfill our mission through the generosity and goodwill of the community," says Mindy Plumlee, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho. "We appreciate the donation of quilts. They will bring comfort to families of sick children during a very difficult time."

Not your normal house cat, Ollie is a Savannah cat, a hybrid breed that's a cross between a serval cat and a domestic cat. So while it's not surprising that he's bigger than a domestic cat, his size is still shocking.
