NAM Jr. Teen teams up with the Ronald McDonald house to keep kids warm

National American Miss Jr. Teen, Sarah Summers( who hails from MY HOMESTATE - Nebraska..GO BIG RED!) has been working with Project Linus since her crowning as the state queen last summer. Through this program, Sarah receives donations of material, in which she hand makes blankets. These blankets are then donated to children's organizations in need of warm blankets. As you can see, from the photo on the left - Sarah spends numerous hours hand making these wonderful gifts!

Recently, Sarah donated
over 20 fleece blankets(all of which she handmade) to the local Ronald McDonald House in Omaha, NE. The Ronald McDonald House opens their doors to families who have children needing serious medical attention. With medical bills being so high, the Ronald McDonald House allows the families of these children to live there for free, in order to help these families out financially during a time of crises and need. The blankets that Sarah donated will help so many families out...what an amazing way to give back Sarah!! You are truly one ROCKIN' NAM GIRL!!!!!!!!!
