FFA Citizenship Committee Giving the Gift of Warmth
The Elgin FFA Citizenship Committee, comprised of Hannah Brush, Ethan Hollenbaugh, Ava Tack, and Joseph Greene, started with the goal to donate tie blankets made by the Elgin FFA Chapter to Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. We had several donations from FFA members and their families. We collected a variety of colorful boys and girls blankets for all ages. We also stayed after school to assemble them. We have made a total of 37 blankets beating out goal of 25. We delivered the blankets to the Ronald McDonald House at Nationwide Children's Hospital on December 21st. We recognize the good health that we have and would like to take time to dedicate some of our time to helping those in need. We hope these blankets will comfort the children through the holidays.
