4th grade students from M. Agnes Jones Elementary wanted to help other children, so they came up with making no-sew blankets for the organization, “Project Linus,” which provides love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort through blankets to children 0 – 18 years old who are seriously ill or traumatized.
The students, an all girl team, took this project seriously. They met in November and decided on what they wanted to do to help other children. They met five times to work on this project, and In total, they donated eight blankets to a local Project Linus chapter.
When asked what they thought about this project, one of the students said, “I learned that a 5th grader from our school has a sister who got a blanket when she was in the hospital”. Now we know that “real” kids will get our blankets.” Special thanks to Site Coordinator Karen Robertson for mentoring the students in such a great way.
