Fleece & Thank You and OVMS Providing Comfort for Children in the Hospital
During April we begin taking the Michigan assessment called M-Step, the 8th grade spend 1/2 the day on M-Step and we devote the other 1/2 of the day ( over a period of a week or so) doing various community service projects. This helps our students learn about the importance of giving and the needs of the larger community.
We are excited to be a part of this and hope you will be able to support with a $24 donation for a blanket kit to be made by OVMS students!
Fleece & Thank You events are an awesome experience that we will not soon forget. They provide us special blanket kits, and these kits are helping give forward an experience for our warriors at the hospital. Each kit has the fleece material wrapped in a ribbon, as well as a unique patch that will allow each OVMS student to upload an uplifting and hopeful message that can be played by the child in the hospital, to let them know someone is thinking of them and wishing them a speedy recovery (or the strength to fight). We would like to raise enough money to make at least 50 blankets.
The most impactful part of the Fleece & Thank You blankets is the video message that goes along with them from the makers. At a time when children are missing their friends and becoming disconnected, we give them a friendly face and message of support. Our blanket kits are a special part of the process because they have the unique tag already pressed onto them that carries your video message with the blanket.
Every $24 pays forward the experience for a sick child. With the purchase of blanket kits, we are able to not only provide your material, scissors, and a video tag, but we can then we deliver your blanket to the hospital for the next warrior that needs its comfort!
