When he heard about the Sept. 5 school bus-semitrailer collision southeast of Blue Hill that killed four people and injured five others, Kaleb Pfeifer wanted to help.
The Doniphan-Trumbull seventh-grader proposed to his technology class teacher, media specialist Melissa Sears, that the class make a quilt for Blue Hill students.
"It was just something I wanted to do because at first we were going to make ... it to hang in our library because we already have one and I thought it would be fun for the whole class to make one," he said. "Then, when I heard about the accident, I asked my teacher if we could make one for Blue Hill, so Blue Hill knows we're caring for them."
Kaleb was one of 16 D-T middle school students who made quilt blocks. Three D-T teachers made blocks, too.
"I thought it was really fun just making it and having the feeling of helping others, cheering other people up," he said.
