Members of Carson-Newman University’s Alpha Lambda Delta were recently involved in making blankets for babies being treated at Children’s Hospital. Twenty members of the underclassman honor society made over 30 tie fleece blankets that were then delivered to the Knoxville hospital.
Knoxville’s Chelsea Buchanan, who serves as special assistant to the society’s president and advisors, said that the group wanted to do something for the community, and that Children’s Hospital seemed like the right choice. “We felt so honored to be able to help in this way,” said the sophomore consumer services major. “Our goal was to let these families know we were thinking about them and praying for them."
