As visiting royalty at the Tennessee/Kentucky pageant over Labor Day weekend, 2016 Miss Missouri Pre-Teen, Abbie Mueller, decided to make community service truly a “NAMily” affair! In conjunction with her charity, Abbie’s Helping Hands, Abbie worked with visiting NAM royalty and pageant contestants to make a special commemorative blanket for donation to a local children’s crisis center in the Nashville area.
Over the course of the weekend, Abbie invited girls of all ages to tie one of the fleece fringes of a blanket specially picked to reflect the patriotic theme colors of the weekend’s rehearsals. The finished blanket was then donated at the end of the weekend to a local foster and children’s crisis center.
Abbie thanks Matt Leverton and his awesome team for a wonderful weekend of NAMily, fun, and community service. The photos are of the blanket in process and in its completed state being donated to the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Center in Franklin, TN!
