The Gifted and Talented first graders at Higgins Elementary presented the Children’s Advocacy Center 75 child-sized blankets for children who come to the center and are in need of comforting. The community service project began in February and were presented to Executive Director Rebecca Peevy at the center’s annual balloon release on May 1.
