All wrapped up


Students, teachers and a number of volunteers at St. Paul School in Salem, Ohio, knitted and crocheted more than 30 scarves for the Special Olympics. Coats and Clark, the manufacturer of Red Heart Super Saver yarns, led the effort and had a corporate goal to collect 5,000 scarves. But when it was over, the company had received 35,000 scarves. St. Paul’s contribution to the project was coordinated by art teacher Amy Goodchild.
