On February 1 from 11-3, Olivia C. ’26 will be selling hair scrunchies and flour sack dish towels at the West Hartford Town Hall. She’s part of West Hartford’s first-ever Pop-Up Kids Market, for which Watkinson is a community sponsor. All the money she raises will go to the Crosby Fund for Haitian Education. Olivia has been sewing for years and when her sewing teacher told her about this opportunity she applied immediately. Her business is called “Stitching 4 Education.” She is sewing to pay for the education of Phens Oltin and Sophia Melissa Altidort, two Crosby Fund students who she and a friend started sponsoring 2 years ago with their birthday money.
Make plans to come see Olivia and representatives from Watkinson on February 1!
