Rachael spends day two of the road trip at Palmetto Senior Center, where she works with the center's director, Patti. Rachael joins the band, helps serve lunch, leads a dance class and is put to work in the quilting room.
While she's working, Rachael finds out that the quilts are being sold to raise profits for 13-year-old Eli, who is in need of back surgery because of a spinal cord curvature that complicates his breathing. To show her support, Rachael decides to purchase a quilt for $1,000—much more than the suggested price. She gives $500 of that to the center and $500 to Eli.
