Making Blankets for Pillows for Paws

DECEMBER 4, 2023

Throughout this fall, students in Pillows for Paws have been hosting events for the non-profit organization Pillows for Paws, which was founded by Jen Halpern, aunt of Olivia H. and Grace H. According to their website, the organization is dedicated to “providing comfort and love to NYC shelter cats, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The group does this by donating beds, blankets, toys, treats, medical supplies, food, Kuranda beds, plus many more enrichment items to our city shelters on a monthly basis.” Students have hosted a Crafting Cafe in the commons to create blankets and beds for the animals. Led by Isabella C. ’25, Pillows for Paws also hosts drives to collect linens, pet food, and toys for donation to the Animal Care Centers of NYC.
