Wednesday July 17: On-Campus - A representative of One House at a Time (OHAAT) will be informing the youth about their organization and their Beds for Kids program. We will be making no-sew blankets and no-sew pillows which will be given to children who receive a bed through the OHAAT program. We will also be putting together "parent packs" which include some essentials for parents who's children are recipients of beds.
