FCCLA Donates Tie Blankets and Teddy Bears to Leigh Rescue Unit

Every time that the Leigh Volunteer Rescue Unit responds to a call with children involved, they give the kids tie blankets and teddy bears. Recently, they contacted the Leigh-Clarkson FCCLA Chapter after an accident that involved four children. Their supply of blankets and teddy bears diminished after this accident, and they were in need of more. 


The Leigh Clarkson chapter eagerly responded by making ten tie blankets and purchasing ten teddy bears to donate to the rescue unit. The chapter bought all the materials and in a two-week span, members volunteered their free time to prepare these blankets for the rescue unit. After everything was made, four senior FCCLA members went down to the fire station to meet with a few EMTs/EMRs to donate the teddy bears and tie blankets.


Senior, Payje Rayback said, “I was excited to be a part of the whole blanket-making process. We did this project to reach out and help children who are in an accident. We also hope to continue to do more projects like this one in the future.”


Advisor, Mrs. Megan Hillen said, “We are happy to help support our community organizations in any way we can. We always enjoy creating more partnerships and finding new ways to be involved throughout our community.”
