Mason Intermediate fifth-graders make blankets to grant wishes

Community May Purchase Blankets at Oct. 25 Football Game

Mason Intermediate fifth-graders in Andrea Castner and Maddy Rossetti’s classes will sell blankets to Comet football fans during the October 25 game versus Fairfield in order to raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

To make the blankets, students were provided with two pre-cut pieces of fleece, which were purchased and cut by Team Aspire parents. Next, students partnered up, picked out their fabric, measured and cut slits around the edges and tied knots to connect the fabric.

“Done!” shouted Andrew Barnett, Evan Kiamie, Graham Smith and Nick Watson, becoming the first group to complete their blanket.

The teachers were proud of what their students accomplished, and are hopeful that the blanket fundraiser will raise enough money to make a local child’s wish come true.

“We wanted our students to find a need, fill the need, and to see it fulfill wishes,” Rossetti said.
