NCCS Students Create Blankets of Hope

For the second year, NCCS Middle and Upper School students supported Blankets of Hope, a non-profit organization that promotes kindness by donating blankets to the homeless with handmade cards. In total, $700 was collected by families and 72 blankets with student-made cards were delivered to Inspirica, a Stamford-based organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness. 
Many of the cards were made during Middle School WINN (What I Need Now) time, when students choose from a slate of activities based on their interests.
“The cards included such warm and caring notes by the students.” said parent Molly Ghoussias who led the Parents’ Association initiative with fellow parent Mindy Stewart. “It was such a great team effort, and for such a wonderful cause.”
