Students make neonatal blankets

Cal Coast Academy’s sixth through 12th grades partnered with Rady Children’s Hospital to provide the neonatal ward with receiving blankets to swaddle the infants.

“I was overjoyed when the students of Cal Coast Academy reached out and helped the infants at Rady Children’s,” said Amanda Austin, coordinator for In-Kind/Community Development of Rady Children’s Hospital. “With the hospital currently relying on donations and support from the community, it’s encouraging to have a group of kids willing to give back.”

In addition to a traditional curricula, students at Cal Coast Academy run a 501(c)3 nonprofit called Students in the Business of Service. The program teaches students how to construct items to donate and meet with local businesses to solicit donations for their projects. They also take on financial record keeping under the direction of an administrator.
