Congrats to Mrs. Miller and the Donlon 5th graders who participated in this program. I am so proud to know some of the wonderful teachers and staff at this school who go above and beyond to encourage their students on a daily basis. Thank you to all the students and teachers who participated in this loving project. Happy Valentine's Day will now have an even more special meaning to both the givers and receivers of these blankets.

What a GREAT story to read. Brought a Huge smile to my face!

Congratulations to Britni Miller for her leadership in the effort, as well as the other 5th grade teachers and STUDENTS at Donlon. You are making a difference for children in the hospital, and your selfishness in this project is a great example of what teamwork can accomplish.
