A HUGE Donation!

Remember my friend Diana and her faculty and staff friends from Station Middle School in Barrington? You can read about them here.

On Friday evening Diana called me with some exciting news.  Last week was Colonial Week at Station.  The 7th grade boys and girls were scheduled to do some very "gender specific" projects.  Boys were to work with wood, and the girls were going to weave.  After meeting Mallory, the teachers involved thought it would be a better idea to have them work on a project that would be put to good use instead.

The girls were shown parts of our blog, fleece was purchased, and the girls set to work.  And BOY, did they work!  They wanted to present their blankets to Mallory today during their lunch hour.  OF COURSE we were happy to be there.  I told Mallory they made a LOT of blankets but I didn't tell her JUST how many.

Imagine the look on her face when she was told they made NINETY-FIVE blankets. 95!  That's a lot of warm Lurie's patients this winter!  Thanks, Station, for warming our hearts today.
