Blankets & Bears deliver early Christmas presents to Explorer's Academy

Outlook staff writer

Blankets & Bears staff and CHS employees were on hand on Monday to deliver early Christmas presents to all 48 students at the Laurel Head Start/Explorer’s Academy
Sandy McCaffree and her B&B team have been delivering new pillows, handmade pillowcases, handmade fleece blankets and stuffed animals to Head Start/Explorer’s Academy students since 2005.
This year Blankets & Bears delivered 500 “bundles” to Laurel, Lewistown, Harlowton, Roundup, Billings, Lockwood and Terry Park students.
In a press release, McCaffree said “it takes nearly 17 volunteer seamstresses to make all the cases and blankets, but with busy hands and loving hearts, women across Billings and some churches sew 10 months out of the year to meet the needs pledged by the board members of Blankets & Bears.”
