Bay View Academy Students Make Blankets for Homeless

Twenty-three students ranging from grade one through grade five created 24 blankets.

 students made baby blankets for Hasbro Children’s Hospital and McAuley Village, a two-year transitional housing program for homeless single parents and their children.

The after-school project, which reinforces the Academy’s Mercy Core values of compassion and service and collaboration, was run by teacher Janine Cooney, according to a press release from the school.

Twenty-three students ranging from grade one through grade five created 24 blankets.

“The girls gave up their afternoon activities to be a part of this project. They love doing it because they really feel they are personally doing something to help someone else, and they are. It was a wonderful afternoon," said Ms. Cooney in the press release.
