Students donate blankets to Sun Set Nursing Center in Ohio

The blankets were made by hand.

Students at Dawson-Bryant High School in Ohio have made and donated 20 blankets to residents of the Sun Set Nursing Center in Coal Grove.

Members of the Christian Youth Academy at the school bought some fleece material and created a fringed effect on the edges as part of the community service project. They presented the blankets to the nursing facility during their lunch hour last week.

Audra Deere, business teacher at the school, said: “It was an easy project. A lot of our kids are focused on school. This provided them with a way to put their skills to work for the community. It was a way to give back and show God’s love to others.”
