By MJ Vieweg, Staff Writer

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 Snowball.com, 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.
