Addie Punch and Erin Moritz wanted to make a donation for the children served by the Children's Advocacy and Protection Center of Catawba County. The girls, members of Girl Scout Troop 10441 in Conover, asked the Conover First United Methodist Church men for funds to purchase fabric to make blankets. Addie and Erin were able to make 17 hand-tied fleece blankets, and these blankets will be given out to the children who come to the center. In addition, they were able to secure stuffed animals from Publix to be given to the children. Blankets and stuffed animals are items that give children comfort while they are at the CAPC, and they get to take them home to keep.

The CAPC is a non-profit organization that works to prevent and respond to child sexual abuse and serious physical abuse. It coordinates the efforts of Catawba County Social Services, Law Enforcement, and the District Attorney's office. The CAPC seeks to educate adults on prevention of child sexual abuse through their Darkness to Light classes which are offered free in Catawba County. Yello Dyno Safety Classes are also offered free to children from age 4 years up to 5th Grade.

More information about the CAPC is available on its website at You can call the center at 828-465-9296 for more information about educational and volunteer opportunities or email
