Compassionate students sew to comfort others

| May 19, 2014

Project LinusOnce again, students in Pat Konon’s fashion & fabric class at the high school are using their sewing skills to provide comfort to children in need. The students have created blankets that are being donated to Project Linus, which is a charitable organization that provides blankets to ill, traumatized and other children in need from birth to 18 years of age. In the photo, 11th graders Stacey Blessing (left) and Megan Dearolf sew blankets that will provide warmth and security to children while teacher Pat Konon (back, left) and Diane Wagner from Project Linus look on.    
Project Linus is a nationwide organization named after the blanket-loving character in the PEANUTS comics by Charles Schulz. Diane Wagner said only handmade blankets are accepted by Project Linus, and during the past 14 years 40,000 blankets have been collected and distributed throughout Lancaster, Lebanon, Berks and Dauphin counties.
