Kids at Alvin Elementary sending blankets to children in Japan

Kids at Alvin Elementary School in Santa Maria are showing their support for children affected by the disaster in Japan. Mrs. "A" is the kindergarten teacher who came up with a project called "Blanketed with Love." She collected enough money from students,staff, and the community to purchase 19 blankets. Then, the students personalized them with messages of caring and hope.

"She wanted to do something other than just send money and she was inspired by watching the news and seeing the kids that were cold and homeless," said Karen Kahn-Pearson, a kindergarten teacher whose class also participated in the project.

The school plans to send off the blankets in the next couple weeks.
