School officials said about eight colorful fleece blankets were made with supplies donated by the school's Parenting with the Lord group.

The idea to make blankets during the luncheon came from the mother of an eighth-grader who works in the hospice division at Lexington Health Network.

"When we became aware of the need for blankets and lap robes, we decided that was a need we could fill," Principal Kenn Krohse said in a statement.
