Blanket donations warm hearts

State Rep. John Sabat­ina Jr. (D-174th dist.) thanks the com­munity for its dona­tions of blankets and thermal un­der­wear for St. Fran­cis Inn Min­is­tries, a Kens­ing­ton-based char­ity that serves the poor and home­less.

Res­id­ents and loc­al busi­nesses dropped off the items at Sabat­ina’s dis­trict of­fices, and the dona­tions were re­cently taken to St. Fran­cis headquar­ters on Kens­ing­ton Av­en­ue.

In ad­di­tion, three St. Basil Academy class of 2012 gradu­ates, who asked to re­main an­onym­ous, baked about 50 boxes of cook­ies for de­liv­ery to the shel­ter. ••
