One Hundred Acts of Kindness
Trooper Joan acquired all the fabric and materials needed to make the robes. The Joan Ann Fabric stores of Dover, Delaware and Ownings Mills, Maryland give discounts on the fabric. Eleven of her students volunteered to cut patterns and sew two days a week until they made 100 flannel bathrobes. The Greater North Carolina and Texas Buffalo Soldier Chapters were able to connect Trooper Joan with a contact person for the Nursing home. Once the bathrobes were boxed and ready to ship to Texas, Trooper Cruise asked the Baltimore Chapter for help with getting the robes shipped. The Baltimore Chapter paid the cost to have the robes shipped to Houston Texas.
Trooper Joan Cruise and the students at the Waxter Senior Center are to be commended for their ability to understand and share the feelings of those affected by the storm. 04/2018
