Long Description:
"Blankets and stuffed animals give children a sense of security, and Hannah Leigh knew that children dealing with homelessness could use a bit of security and stability. For her Gold Award project, Hannah made tied fleece blankets and collected donations of 224 stuffed animals for the Jeffco Action Center, a nonprofit homeless shelter that houses men, women and families while they work on self-sufficiency plans. Hannah also held a workshop for members of other Girl Scout troops and children in her neighborhood. During the workshop she taught them how to make the fleece blankets, and the group made 20 blankets to be donated. ' (from (visit link) )
