Hands/On visits Kids Learning Place

HandsOn West Central Ohio and Retired and Senior Volunteer Program visited the Kids Learning Place center in Greenville on Thursday and brought 119 hand knitted scarves for all the children at the building. What an appropriate time during this wintery cold spell!

The children were excited when choosing their favorite colored scarf. The volunteers, Kay Swabb and Maya Penny, also presented scarves to the teachers and bus drivers to keep them warm while they are out with the children; in addition they brought 47 lap robes for the children to use at nap time. A special Thank You to all the volunteers that spent many hours working to keep children warm this winter.
