2018 Miss Inver Grove Heights Service Project

As Miss Inver Grove Heights, one of my duties is to complete three service projects. For my first one, I created something I call Comfort for a Cause. Through this I sewed therapeutic rice bags. They are made from 100% cotton flannel and filled with enriched rice. They can be used hot or cold and are a non medicinal alternative to painkillers. Although they may not have the same effect they still provide comfort. I made these and I donated them to the Minnesota Oncology Woodbury Campus Chemotherapy rooms for patients receiving chemo. I also sold them and raised over $300 in which I donated to the American Cancer Society and the Angel Foundation. I am still selling them and I hope to continue this project. I am so excited to see where it goes!
