Girls on the Run Donate Blankets for a Good Cause

Girls on the Run at Townline and Hawthorn School of Dual Language raised money to help make blankets for Children’s Community Services Foster Care through Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.  With the donations of the school community, our girls were able to make 18 tie blankets and donate an additional $100 for pajamas and stuffed animals that will be included with the blankets!  Our girls chose to make blankets and donate them to people in need as part of their community project, which is done each year.
