    Students from St. John Vianney School in San Jose have made special blankets to help children who are in need.

    Wednesday the school blessed the blankets that each class made by hand -- all 116 of them. The blankets will be given to various non-profits and groups that help the sick and less fortunate.

    Each homeroom class held fundraisers to raise the money needed to purchase the fabric for the blankets.

    "When people experience some time of crisis or sickness... we can extend that support to them through that blanket," Sister Michele Anne Murphy said. "It’s a great project."

    Some of the groups that will receive the blankets include Project Night Night, Ronald McDonald House, the Humane Society Silicon Valley and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
