Members of the new Farmington United Junior Optimist Club, with members from Farmington, Harrison and North Farmington High Schools, made a special delivery to Botsford Hospital Friday afternoon.
The students brought Beanie Babies, wrapped in "Magic Hugs Squares", which will be given to children with cancer, or those who are brought to the hospital emergency room and need the energy from the magic blankets.
The tag on the Magic Hugs Square reads: “This magic blanket was made especially for you. It is made out of hugs. When you are sad or mad or scared or bored, hold this square close to you and it will give you the comfort of a million hugs. It will love you no matter what!”
Farmington United Junior Optimists is one of the many Junior Optimist clubs sponsored by the Farmington/Farmington Hills Breakfast Optimist Club. For more information, visit f2hjunioroptimists.org.
