9-Year-Old's Project Means 60 Warm Blankets for Mission

Nine-year-old Natylee Sinkiawic, with help from her mom, Lori, delivered 49 fleece blankets to the Mission this week, to go with 11 they’d delivered earlier. Natylee has earned $907 this fall by making and selling Rainbow Loom bracelets for $1 each. She used the money to buy materials for the (so far) 60 blankets. Natylee, her mom and a few women from North Park Covenant Church in Machesney Park then constructed the blankets. Thanks, Natylee, for your generous heart, and thanks to all who helped make this happen!
