Monday, Feb. 15, students from Northwest Nazarene University will use their President’s Day holiday to assist in a Haiti recovery effort.

Students and community members will gather in the Johnson Sports Center Monday morning to make blankets for Haitian children. The project is being sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA) and Project Linus of Idaho. Project Linus defines their mission as providing love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need of the gift of a new handmade blanket, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.”

Students who become “blanketeers” for the day will be rewarded for their altruism through Disney’s “Give a day, get a Disney day” program that trades a ticket to a Disney park for a day of volunteer service. NNU’s student body government has organized a trip to Disneyland in April for all students who participate.

For more information, please contact Hollie Lindner at marketing@nnu.edu, or at 467-8531.
