Middle schoolers make blankets for youth, animals in need
Cheney Middle School eighth-graders – part of earth science teacher Sally Sautner’s “Team Cyclone” – put together blankets for Project Linus, a nonprofit organization dedicated to “providing security through blankets” for ill or traumatized children and teens. Project Linus received 27 tie blankets made by the students that will be given to help local youth in need.
The Team Cyclone students also constructed pet blankets and dog toys, and then donated them to PetSmart, a company that works closely with the Humane Society, CATS Cradle and Diamond in the Ruff. Materials were all donated by Cheney Middle School as part of the Live to Give service learning project, which is an annual, school-wide call to action that focuses on giving back to the community.
