Blankets for a Good Cause

This year a new Providence Academy tradition has arisen. This is The Upper School PACMAN blanket making. The group began making blankets on Thursday, December 7, in N315. The room was filled with holiday joy, treats, and music. Many people came to the event from middle schoolers all the way to seniors. Julia Landwehr ’18 said, “This is our first time in recent years doing an event here on campus, so that’s been really exciting.”

PACMAN stands for Providence Academy Campus Ministry Addressing Needs.  According to the Providence Academy website, this group is “a service-oriented group that focuses on service projects for the PA and the greater Twin-Cities community.”  PACMAN has been to Feed My Starving Children, Hospitality House, and Second Harvest Heartland. All the blankets PACMAN makes during this season’s event will go to The Simpson House to be used in the homeless shelter.

Last Thursday PACMAN made a total of four blankets. With the goal of making 12-15, they will need plenty of help to reach it.  PACMAN will be meeting today Thursday, December 14, in room N315, Ms. Uppgaard’s room, from 3:30 to 4:30. Please consider bringing a donation to help pay for the materials needed to make the blankets. Anything is appreciated.

“So, after school, grab your friends, and enjoy holiday treats and some quality Christmas music while helping others!” says Julia.
