Gig Harbor cheerleaders & the blankets they donated.

Since high school, I have known this about writing – you can never do enough of it about cheerleaders.

In that spirit, here are the cheerleaders of Gig Harbor High School. They  asked and worked for donations the past two months and turned those into 20 colorful blankets, and donated those blankets to Tacoma General Hospital.

As a former, brief resident there, I can tell you colorful fleece blankets are welcome. As are cheerleaders, dogs that visit and climb on your bed and doctors who save your life and then let you go home.

Thank you, Gig Harbor cheerleaders.  Along with the patients who will use your blankets, you warmed my heart.
