FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — FEB 12, 2014 —

Inspired after hearing about a project in which volunteers made scarves, in silence, for charity, the Interact Club at River City High School decided to do something similar.

  Students in the club started “Blankets of Love,” joining in silent meditation or prayer while cutting and double-knotting pieces of fleece into blankets to give to those in need.

   They were taught the blanket-making technique by Patty Gianatasio.

   The student club is sponsored by the city’s two Rotary chapters and advised by local chiropractor Charyl Silva.
