This holiday season, students are providing pillow cases to help brighten the lives of children. The pillows are going to Joshua House, a center for abused and neglected children.
This was the first year of pillow case donations and the opportunity was open for IB juniors and seniors. Donors received three service or creative hours for the first pillow case and two hours for every donation after. Next year, the project may extend to traditional juniors and seniors.
Biology teacher Judy Charlton was inspired to bring the project to Hillsborough when she saw the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial on Facebook. “[I] had the idea it would be a wonderful service and creative project for students,” said Charlton. She hopes to continue the project in the future and provide a pillow case for every child residing at Joshua House.
