OSWEGO, NY – Members of the Oswego High School Interact Club recently traveled to the Oswego Hospital to donate sixty blankets for babies.
Students conducted fundraisers to obtain the money needed to purchase materials and met after school to construct the blankets.
The blankets will eventually be given to mothers and their new born infants.
The Interact Club conducts this project once a year as a service to the community.
The Interact Club is associated with the Sunrise Rotary and Noon Rotary clubs of Oswego.
Club president Ariana Gilbert said, “This project allows us to be involved with with an important component of our community, the Oswego Hospital. We can give back to our community and have some fun at the same time.”
Interact Club advisor Warren Shaw added, “We appreciate the cooperation of the Oswego Hospital, and especially Cindy Tascarella who helps coordinate this. The students work hard to raise money and do work for this project and as a result have an opportunity to support the community that supports them.”
