FUSION Kid’s Club Raise Almost $200 For Kids With Cancer

Students in the Bethel United Methodist Church’s free after-school program, FUSION Kid’s Club, raised close to $200 last Wednesday for their first community project of the year. Students raised money to purchase supplies to make colorful pillowcases for kids with cancer at Yale New Haven Hospital.

Thanks to the generous donations of baked goods from Stony Hill Ice Cream & Bakery, FUSION Kid’s Club exceeded their fundraising goal. FUSION Kid’s Club provides homework help, free snacks, fun games and participates in community service projects.

Vivian Hultgren, owner of Homestead Quilts, invited the children to come to her shop to sew the pillowcases and help make a sick child’s room a little more cheerful. She said, “If we could bring those kids a little something to brighten their day than we’ve done our job.”

Hultgren has participated in many volunteer projects to help people in the community battling sickness. Her “Angels”  are a group of volunteers who come to the shop  and create gifts of warmth and comfort.

Hultgren said, “They give expecting nothing in return.”

Gift recipients include sick children in hospitals, nursing home patients, women undergoing treatment for breast cancer and many other cancer and Hospice patients. She enjoys working with kids to inspire them to be angels too.
