During January and February, USF’s Warm Fuzzy group used leftover yarn to make headbands and ear-warmers for the kindergartner students at Bloomingdale Elementary School in Fort Wayne.

Project HeadbandsKindergartner teacher Cathy Minor let her students pick out their headbands on Valentine’s Day. They simply loved the headbands, and are all USF Cougars fans, Minor said.

“With the generous support of faculty, staff, Sisters and students, about 50 items were made,” said USF’s Sister Carol Myers, who led the project. “The photos we took show how happy and delighted the students were when they got their headbands. Thank you for your help in making them! Many blessings for your generosity,” she told volunteers.

Remaining items went to the case worker’s special room to be distributed to the school’s needy children.
