Kids create unique gifts for Covenant House Alaska

ANCHORAGE - Kids are learning to be part of their community by knitting to help others.

Winterberry Charter School students made dozens of hats, scarves and gloves for homeless teens at Covenant House Alaska.

Winterberry staffers say every item made creates a ripple effect.

It helps keep someone warm, and teaches students about charity and kindness.

“It makes me feel good that I can help the world [with] my small part. It’s nothing really big, but who knows,” said sixth grader Tayler Steadman.

Covenant House says it gets a lot of donations, but the items donated by Winterberry are different.

They show unique character not found in machine-made goods.
