Guardian Angels Youth Leadership Team (YLT) extended an invitation to GA Students to join them in a Christmas Craft event on Wednesday December 21st after school. Students and YLT members had a great time making fleece blankets, achieving their goal of 10 blankets to be donated to children in the hospital this Christmas. Materials were funded by GA Parish and labor donated by a group of GA students ranging from 1st to 8th grade, under the guidance of Youth Leadership Team members.
Why are we doing this?
YLT decided to do this project because, as a group, we thought that we should help children have a Merry Christmas, even if there are struggles going on in their lives. We hope that this helps show others to always help those in need.
What are YLT’s expectations for the future?
We hope to make all the youth in our GA community to feel included and have a deeper connection with Christ. We hope to make this Christmas Craft Fleece Blankets a new annual tradition at GA Parish going forward.
Blankets were delivered to Ridgeview Emergency & Urgent Care at Two Twelve Medical Center in Chaska on Friday December 23rd. Emergency department staff were very excited about the donation and said: “the children will love them”
