Alice Birney Waldorf-Inspired EK-8 School held its third annual knit-a-thon to benefit children in need of a warm blanket.

Hand-knitted squares created by students were sewn together to create blankets that will be distributed to children in shelters or hospitals.

“The joyful colors not only provide warmth but also give comfort to those children facing a challenging situation,” says Principal Mechelle Horning. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the students to share their knitting skills and participate in community service.”

After the exchange of blankets at the Mustard Seed School in Sacramento, Horning treated the top participants to lunch and a tour in Old Sacramento to celebrate their accomplishments.
