 Service Learning is a class offered at SJHS that allows students to do service within and outside of the school. Once a semester students are required to do some sort of project that helps others. Kaity Hansen, Jehni McNeil, and Jessie Wimmer, all eighth graders, decided to make fleece blankets and donate them.
The girls tied about fourteen fleece blankets and donated them to The Dollhouse Boutique, where they were sold and one hundred percent of the profit was then donated to the Children’s Justice Center where children who have been abused can get the help they need.   
According to Kaity Hansen, she wanted to do this project because she loves to sew so she thought it would be fun. Jehni McNeil said “it sounded like a really needed cause.”  Jessie Wimmer wanted to do it so they could raise money to help children.
