CUMMING, Ga. — Six South Forsyth High School fencers made nine blankets to benefit Project Linus, a nonprofit organization with the goal of providing blankets to persons and families in need.
Last week, Shivani Bhagat, one of the fencing team captains, worked with a little boy named Camden. At age 5, Camden was diagnosed with cancer; however, this didn't stop him from helping Bhagat make blankets for other kids just like him who are in hospitals.
Bhagat said that as members of our community, "We should strive to be like Camden and give back."
Bhagat was chosen to represent SFHS at the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) program at Berry College earlier this month.
