Henry’s Service Reflection

This year I helped make no-sew fleece blankets for undocumented minors being held in a residential facility while awaiting trial in immigration court. While making these blankets, we talked about the terrible conditions that the undocumented minors experience in the “residential facility.” They get one mesh-like blanket to sleep on, so we made them some fleece blankets to be a little bit more comfortable and warm. Some of the stories Claire told us were very upsetting and made me feel like I should be doing more for the cause. She told us that there was a little 7 year old girl there who was found at the border with no family. I’m happy I had the opportunity to help make these kids more comfortable.
