2018 Knit-a-Thon Kick-Off 10:00-12:00

This event serves as both a fundraiser and a community service project. Pledge sheets go out to every child and they are encouraged to solicit pledges for each square they knit toward blankets (assembled by a team of volunteers) that are later donated to Project Linus, a non-profit group that collects and distributes blankets to children in hospitals, shelters, receiving homes, etc. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn how their handwork education can be put into a very real and practical use, an act that brings warmth and love to another child. In previous years we have collected over $6,000. The money from this event goes directly to fund handwork. Our goal is to reach $10,000 in the coming years to cover our handwork budget.
