More than 100 people participated in the project, including PSC staff and faculty, as well as several volunteers off campus. The volunteers exceeded the goal with a grand total of 372 items, including 136 fleece blankets, 131 crocheted or knitted lap afghans, 60 hats, 16 pairs of fingerless gloves, 13 fleece lap afghans, 12 scarves, nine hat and scarf sets and five full-sized crocheted afghans.
