The gift of warmth
The Westshore Young Leaders' annual holiday celebration meeting took on new significance as the teens made no-sew fleece scarves for children living in the OhioGuidestone Residential Treatment Campus at the Berea Children's Home. The young leaders cut, frayed and placed beads on each scarf. A special touch was added with a “Made with love especially for YOU” sticker that was placed carefully for the recipient to see.
The students felt excited to be able to make something to give to another teen during the holiday season. OhioGuidestone and the Westshore Young Leaders are looking to coordinate on future interactive projects in the upcoming year.
Join the Westshore Young Leaders at their monthly meeting on Thursday, Jan. 21, from 6-8 p.m. at the Bay Village Police Department community room. The meeting is open to ALL middle and high school students in the six Westshore communities.
