Quilts donated to Red Cross end up in thrift store

CLARK CO., Ind. -- Some Indiana volunteers are not too happy.

It turns out that donations meant for the tornado victims ended up at a thrift store.

The Clark County Quilting Guild donated several quilts to the American Red Cross for tornado victims.

So you can imagine their surprise when they found those quilts on store shelves.

"If you can't depend on the American Red Cross in the time of tragedy... you know, that shakes a lot of people's faith," said Lisa Thilo, the Quilt Coordinator.

The Red Cross said it was a misunderstanding, and it's against policy to accept physical items.
