Blankets can be a source of comfort and security for children in crisis. First-grade students at Elementary South made colorful blankets to comfort critically ill or traumatized children as part of the Project Linus-Kids Helping Kids Program. A representative from Project Linus visited the school on Tuesday, showed sample blankets, and provided tips on creating the squares for the blankets. Then the students went back to their classrooms and drew hearts, happy faces and other comforting pictures on squares that will be made into blankets. The blankets will be donated to local organizations such as Alexian Brothers, A Safe Place, and Zacharias Center.
