Northwest Elementary News
Welcome to Northwest Local School, Home of the Mohawks "Preparing students to meet the academic, social, civic and career needs for a global society."
The wonderful women of Project Linus from Harrison Freewill Baptist Church in Minford have already made and donated several regular blankets and a weighted lap blanket to our MD unit here at Northwest Elementary. Ann and Darrell Cable delivered the blankets on May 12th, and while they were here, took an order for more! This summer, the ladies will be working on 20 more weighted lap blankets and 24 regular blankets for our Northwest kiddos! They charge absolutely nothing for the blankets, but do accept donations of fabric (cotton, flannel, and fleece), batting, and thread. Ann said that they will also make a "touchy, feely blanket" for our sensory room and are going to look into making weighted neck "snakes" and other weighted sensory items. These blankets can cost over $100 a piece if purchased from specialty catalogs, so we are VERY LUCKY they want share their gifts with Northwest!The mission of Project Linus is to "Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly creadted by volunteer blanketeers."
