A 4th grade class in Santa Maria has put the finishing touches on a quilt for a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Students at Joe Nightingale Elementary School decided to help out after they heard the story of a little girl who lost her brother, and a leg, in the explosion.
"For kids this age to be able to feel that they contributed something, I think it's really important for them because a lot of times they don't understand what happened, and they want to feel like they made some kind of difference," said Lisa Cooper, Joe Nightingale Elementary School.
The quilt will be sent to Boston Children's Hospital.
