Michelle Aarvig is an energetic, good-humored and very sensitive woman, always offering to give of her time to help others. In 2018, she felt the need to do something special for someone during the Christmas season. The Cranston Fire, power outages and other happenings instilled a deep sense of community in her, as well as others in Anza.“I was taught that before I could receive a gift I had to choose something to do for someone else,” she said. “I continued the tradition with my own children by feeding the homeless and when my grandkids were born, we taught them.”She decided that crafting gift baskets would be a great way to spread the love. Aarvig called her project Baskets of Love and went to work collecting the materials she would need.[gallery td_select_gallery_sli
