Our Health Careers Club expressed high levels of concern and care about the health effects and high rates of homelessness in Minneapolis, after talking about the encampment in HCC, and chose to make fleece blankets for a local shelter as a way to show they care and are thinking about this issue. They had a blast making the blankets together, and Our Saviour's Shelter on Chicago Ave. was glad to receive the blankets for residents during one of the coldest weeks this Winter!
