Tampico program gives blankets, relief to Washington
Tampico Elementary School fifth-grader Brody Naftzger pulls a box of blankets into the back of a school bus Wednesday morning, as students and staff prepare to deliver them to students in need in Washington. The Tampico school raised $1,400 to buy the materials and make blankets for families affected by the EF4 tornado that devastated the central Illinois city Nov. 17.
