Students donate to Alma Manor
A HUGE “Thank You” to all who donated fleece, money, and time to our service project of making fleece blankets for the residents of the Alma Manor. We were able to collect enough fleece for 63 blankets!! Alma and Maple Hill Elementary students gathered together to tie the blankets during their Charger Family meeting this month. Members from our military unit even came and joined in the fun! We had enough blankets to hand out to the members of the Paxico and Maple Hill Senior apartments!
