Thirteen-year old twin sisters Maddie and Morgan Manning started one community service project that has evolved into two:  The Bundle Up club and the Project Baby Bundle.  The girls started blankets1the projects as a way to help.  “We want to help homeless, needy and less-fortunate people,” Maddy said.

The Bundle Up Club distributes gift kits of hand-made blankets, hats and scarves to the homeless.

“The Bundle Up Club makes hats, scarves and blankets for those who are less fortunate.  All of our items are hand-made,” said Maddie.

Withatsh help from family and volunteers, the girls worked for five months to crochet and knit the hats, scarfs and make the no-sew fleece blankets for the kits.  Altogether the girls were able to deliver 104 gift kits, more than double their initial goal.

Their second project, Project Baby Bundle, serves a local crisis pregnancy center to make baby hats and blankets.  With the $100 grant received from Start A, the girls will be able to purchases supplies (fleece and yarn) for the blankets and hats.  Their goal is to make 50 Baby Bundle kits (blanket/hat)-in three months- to donate to the crisis pregnancy shelter.
