We made four baby blankets and donated them to Shepherd’s Gate. This will help give warmth for many children. Shepherd’s Gate is a shelter for homeless or abused Women and children. They stay there for as long as they want until they learn how to live and to stay away from those that hurt them. It is also a religious shelter and their main saying from God to those who were hurt is; “Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. Wherever they go they will find green pastures.”

We went to Walmart and purchased fleece to cut out the right size squares and tie them at Megan’s house. We chose baby patterns including teddy bears, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, and baby zoo animals. This was a fun process.

At the shelter, the people in charge were very nice, they were very happy about getting blankets. We filled out a receipt so that they could send us a thank you note. After we gave these blankets away, we felt good and thought that we did a good deed.
