ALTOONA, Wis. (WEAU) -- A local quilt shop is asking for help to give back to the victims of Saturday’s fatal hit-and-run crash.

Stitch Supply Co. in Altoona is asking for help making quilt blocks to put together quilts for the victims’ families.

The shop took to Facebook on Monday to ask for volunteers to help make green heart blocks to organize together into a quilt. If you’re interested in helping, please check out the post ,where they have color instructions as well as the block pattern.

The shop says they are hoping to have the blocks over the next two weeks, or by Nov. 17.

Four people were killed Saturday, including three girls and a mom who were part of a Girl Scout Troop. They were cleaning up trash on the side of the road when a man left the road, and hit multiple people. The man has been arrested and appeared in court on Monday. Authorities say he was huffing before the crash.
