To help Sydney Blair Sebastian make 50 blankets for babies and toddlers affected by the May 22 tornado in Joplin, Walmart in Monett has agreed to donate 40 yards of baby fleece for her project.

Sydney, a seventh grader at Monett Middle School, said each blanket takes about an hour to make. She hopes to have 50 finished by Dec. 1. She is networking to find the best way to distribute her creations.
