After Hurricane Harvey caused major damage to cities in South Texas late August, the UTA FabLab decided to come together to help those affected. Already hosting monthly workshops to teach the community new skills and trades, the lab decided the month of September would be dedicated to making blankets for donation. After meeting for a few hours a week, more than 100 blankets were made and other donations were made.
Students, faculty and staff explain what they did during each workshop and how their efforts will help those affected by one of the most powerful hurricanes, that made landfall on the U.S., since 2004.
