We need your help! Van Buren Middle School is happy to announce their partnership with our local chapter of Project Linus through our Textiles course! The class of 8th grade students will be crafting homemade blankets to donate to this wonderful organization that supports many children in our area, as they work to learn basic sewing techniques. To make this a success… WE NEED FABRIC! Please considering donating to this great cause, as our students work hard to help others. We are specifically looking for fleece fabric in sections that are 35inx35in or greater in size. Donations can be dropped off to the middle school office. Thank you in advance for your support!
