2015 Make a Blanket Days a Great Success!!
Our 2015 Make a Blanket Days were a terrific success and helped us collect many blankets and supplies to continue our mission of helping local children in distress.
At the two days we made and/or collected a total of 186 blankets, plus 46 skeins of yarn and 12 pieces of fleece and fabric to be made into blankets and quilts
A total of 86 people attended the two events and worked tirelessly for the children. Thanks to all for your generosity and giving spirit and for sharing your time and energy for others.
