A blanket response

the Inland Register

(From the December 15, 2011 edition of the Inland Register)

Cataldo School’s generous fifth graders helped create fleece blankets for the St. Augustine prayer group to donate to the Airway Heights Head Start Program. “It was very meaningful to spend our morning before Thanksgiving appreciating things like having one’s own blanket to sleep under each night,” said fifth grade teacher Sarah Raske. Students assisted in making one fleece blanket for each member of the family. For some it was their first or only blanket. The students contemplated what it would be like to go without a need and helped fulfill basic needs for others with serious empathy and compassion. (IR photo courtesy of Cataldo School, Spokane)
