BLANKET DRIVE... Caeline's Brownie troop held a blanket drive at school this week. They handed out fliers asking for blankets for an organization called Blanketing Arizona. On Christmas Eve they give blankets, quilts and sleeping bags to the homeless in downtown Phoenix. Each morning this week the scouts stood outside school and collected blankets as the students arrived at school. They collected 42 blankets and 8 sleeping bags. She loved doing this and I am proud of her.
