ASTRA helps endangered children

Over the last few months, ASTRA has been gathering lightly-used duffle bags and new personal hygiene items for their Curtis’s Case Project. The girls gathered on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at the Aquatic Center to make fleece blankets and assemble the cases.

Each fleece piece of fabric was cut and knotted along its border to create a cozy blanket. Each case included the following:  a blanket, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and other age-appropriate items like crayons and coloring books. In total, 29 cases were created: 8 for older girls, 7 for younger girls, 7 for older boys, and 7 for younger boys. The bags were then given to Theresa Harris of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Montrose Drug Endangered Children’s Alliance. These bags will be given to kids who are taken into foster care providing them with basic necessities and a place to store personal effects.
