Lauren Stenger ’22 and friends come together in an effort to provide warmth to a local homeless shelter.
A few weekends ago, Kate Stenger ’22, Isha Rao ’22, and I used a micro grant from the CSGC to host a blanket making workshop. The blankets were delivered to the Wells Street Shelter, a local homeless shelter in Greenfield. They use the blankets to make the beds at the shelter warmer. These blankets are very easy make, so people can mindlessly knot the felt together while hanging out with friends. The event was a hit, and we were able to deliver the blankets just in time for a winter storm!
I am so pleased that we could find a way to come together with friends, socially distanced, and provide warmth to a few local homeless people. Thanks again to the CSGC for the micro grant and to Mrs. and Mr. Brown for chaperoning the event!
