Juvenile nall reaches out to Newtown community
January 10, 2013
Staff and youth at Nevada County Juvenile Hall worked together to make a quilt in remembrance of the lives lost as a result of the shooting in Newtown, Conn.
"When the tragedy happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I think all of us were affected differently but each of us wanted to be able to reach out and show our support," said Rod Kahele, interim superintendent at Nevada County Juvenile Hall.
"A majority of our juvenile population volunteered and with staff assistance we completed the panels of the quilt in one day. I am most proud of the unity, cooperation and resepect given to this project by all involved. This project allowed us to bring our youth and staff together to show our respect to the victims, their families, and the community."
The quilt, featuring 26 angels and words of inspiration, will be sent to Newtown this week.
