Area Youth Who Are Homeless for the Holidays Receive Warmth from Santa Marta Residents

Residents at The Plaza at Santa Marta take part in a program known as Fleece 4 Friends. They create fleece blankets, which they then share with Olathe Outreach. Many of the blankets end up with homeless youth or at area hospitals.

The community has been involved for the past few years. Program participants say this is a great way to spend time with their friends at Santa Marta, while getting into the spirit of the season by giving back to the local community. Regardless of whether they live in one of the community’s independent living apartments or at The Plaza, residents continue to lead purposeful lives, engaging in community service.
