A group of seventh grade scholars at Alma del Mar Charter School will donate 15 fleece blankets to The Donovan House, a sober transitional housing program for women and their children in New Bedford. This group, known as the Colby College Crew (named for the Alma Mater of their crew leader, Emily Darrow), held a series of bake sales in December to raise money to buy fleece for the blankets. They worked on the blankets every morning in January and are now looking forward to donating the blankets to be used during these cold winter days. The Colby College Crew’s project is just one of many service projects that middle school scholars developed at Alma del Mar. In sixth grade, scholars collected winter clothing items that were then donated back to other Alma del Mar families in need.
