WILMINGTON, Del. (WPVI) -- Now to a story that makes us Philly Proud.
A Delaware woman is helping homeless people have a comfortable place to sleep, by sewing sleeping mats out of materials discarded by a local hospital.
Gaye Harley is a case manager at Saint Francis Healthcare.
When a local homeless shelter closed last year, she decided to start sewing mats and bags from leftover operating room materials.
On each item, she sews in a tag reading "you are loved".
The project snowballed and now her colleagues are getting involved.
So far, they have donated more than 200 items to the homeless.
