Moses Lake students make blankets for new moms, babies

If you want to see future leaders in action, look no further than Moses Lake High School. Nineteen students in Catherine McPherson’s “Fiber Arts” classes I, II, and III made and donated 15 baby blankets to the “mother/baby” unit at Samaritan Hospital.

It was part of a service project through the FCCLA, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. This is the first time they’ve done the project.

The blankets were made with an assortment of donated fabrics and the students designed the combination of fabrics used in each one.

One of the students involved said, “We wanted to give back to the community and to fill possible needs for any mother or baby.”
