Key Club hosted an event in which attendees made scarves for homeless shelters from 12:50 to 1:20 p.m. during long lunch on Feb. 24 in upper school English teacher Beverley Manning’s room.

Club members, officers and students of all grades worked together to measure and cut a variety of patterned fleece fabrics, which participants then transformed into scarves. All scarves will be donated directly to local homeless shelters through The Toiletri Project.

Treasurer of Key Club Reshma Kosaraju (10) explains the inspiration for the event as well as the preparation that went into it.

“We already made a blanket-making event in conjunction with the PAW [Protecting Animals Worldwide] Club, and so we went off of that and decided that we would do scarves for homeless shelters,” Reshma said. “We have a lot of unfinished scarves, so we’re planning on doing a followup event where we can finish the unfinished scarves that we have.”
