Local children make scarves for the needy once again this year 

Used with permission by Stormy Capalare.

–In the winter of 2018, with cold weather and rain in the forecast, a Paso Robles family and friends started to make scarves for those in need while teaching children about the importance of making a positive impact on the community. The project has returned once again this year on a larger scale.

Local teacher Stormy Capalare has enlisted the help of 29 pre-kinder students at Virginia Peterson Elementary and 26 3rd and 4th graders who are working together as buddies to replicate this project.

“My vision is eventually to have school-wide or even district-wide participation,” says Capalare. “I am teaching my students through the participation of our families how important it is to live with intentionality and mindfulness to help others.”

The project’s next steps are to find a place to hang the scarves up around Paso Robles with a tag. Tags will say “Made with little hands with big hearts in Paso” and “If you need me I am yours” and include art from the children.

Capalare welcomes anyone who would like to participate and will cut and deliver the donated fabric. To learn how you can help with this project, email her at
