Student Council invites students to help create blankets for the residents of the Siena Hills Assisted Living Center on Tuesday, Dec. 1 in room 218 at 2:15 p.m.

The freshman class student council members ask that students bring $2 to pay for the materials. Students who choose to participate in the event will receive community service hours.

“Students should come to this event to hang out with their friends while giving back to their community,” Katie Mars, freshman class president, said.

Student Council will provide fleece material and involved students are asked to make about 100 individual blankets.They encourage everybody to participate so Siena Hills can get as many blankets as are needed for those who reside there.

To make the blankets, students will cut the edge of the material into strips and tie two pieces of cloth into knots. These knotted strips will be joined to form the blankets.

“I think it’s an amazing opportunity to give back to the community. Everyone needs a little warmth around this time of year, and it’s a wonderful way to show you care,” Alex Hird, senior, said.
