WESTMINSTER, Vt. – The record breaking cold November air is making it particularly chilly this year. Janet Wilson, a trustee and long-time volunteer, wanted each child to have something new and warm to wear to school. She asked some of her friends in the Walpole community, some of whom are already familiar with Kurn Hattin from their own volunteer service, to come forward in support of her project.
Bright red sweatshirts with white Kurn Hattin logos were purchased from Bees Tees in Keene, N.H. Nine of Mrs. Wilson’s many friends came to campus to distribute the clothing. They were Judy Daniels, Peg Dion, Sheila Lennon, Nancy Lightner, Carol Melnati, Kay Stack, Maggi Suttles, Deb Timon, and Aylene Wozmac.
“It was wonderful to see how excited the children were to receive these sweatshirts. I want to thank all of the women who helped me realize this goal,” Janet remarked.
Since 1894, Kurn Hattin Homes for Children has helped thousands of children and their families by offering a safe home and quality education in a nurturing environment. Kurn Hattin transforms the lives of children and their families forever. Follow their journey at www.kurnhattin.org.
