Tying Blankets to Warm Hearts and Bodies

“Ties That Bind” was the theme of our Nov. 17 program at Jowonio School in Syracuse. We made 16 fleece blankets that were donated to the McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center in Syracuse, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending child abuse through intervention and education.

As we worked together around four tables, we learned about the work of the McMahon Ryan center and talked about “ties” that bind us together across our differences in experiences, culture or religion. We learned about opportunities to strengthen such ties.

We shared finger food refreshments and conversation as we made the blankets.

Our Dec. 15 meeting will focus on “Holiday Traditions.” It will be hosted by our co-founder Betsy Wiggins at her home on 305 Carleton Drive, off E. Genesee St., Syracuse.
