Students from Trinity Lutheran School in Lombard recently had a chance to work with senior citizens to make blankets for hospice residents at Lexington Health Center.
The blankets were made at the school on Dec. 10 during an annual Senior Luncheon. More than 20 senior citizens who are part of the students' families or members of Trinity Lutheran Church attended the event.
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.
