SWEETWATER, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Students in Nolan County are working to bring a sense of comfort to children in Amarillo who are going through a difficult time.

There is a new emergency shelter at High Plains Children’s Home in Amarillo for kids removed by Child Protective Services (CPS). Children will generally stay there for 45 to 90 days before either going back home or being placed in foster care.

Students at Cornerstone Christian School in Sweetwater are creating blankets for these children as part of the school’s Kindness Program.

Operation Cozy Care is all about giving back.

“I want our students to feel and know that they can do something no matter where they are that they can do something big. Little people can do big things,” says Cornerstone Christian School Director Stephanie Baker.

Cornerstone is also collecting toiletries and comforters to give to the children’s home in Amarillo.
