    (CEDAR CITY, Utah) - Cedar Middle School’s Latinos in Action, a peer-leading class that does community service projects and focuses on leading students to success in school and life, crafted handmade blankets to donate to patients in Valley View’s OB and Cancer Center as a service project. The club learned that oftentimes patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment in the Cancer Center find a blanket to be comforting, and so created and inscribed the blankets with messages of hope like “Keep fighting on!” and “You’re not alone.”

    Madison Clark, head teacher with Latinos In Action, says “We know the importance of service in accomplishing virtually any goal in life, and we love to get to bring a smile or two to those who are getting cancer treatment or new moms who need the blankets. Our goal with Latinos in Action is to get all our students to graduate from high school and go to college, and we teach them the important of service in doing that. Other projects we’ve accomplished this year include a book drive, a bully awareness project, a box tops drive for our school, took the Dare Not To Swear challenge, and we tutor students at South Elementary twice a week. We help students with reading and help students who are English as a Second Language learners. We are very glad to have gotten to make and donate these blankets to Valley View.”
