Those are the words of one of our Blanketeers following our first meeting of the new year. At our meeting, 52 blankets were collected. Photos of these blankets were added to our Blanket Gallery page. The pictures below are the blanket “bags” before I sorted by size (infant, toddler, youth and teen) and prepared them for distribution.
We have 13 very active blanket makers. Our chapter will have a 2 year anniversary this May. Since we began, we have made 617 blankets and delivered 593 of them. Please check out a new page on our website called: Blanket Testimonials and you’ll read about the impact our blankets have had on families in our community and their children.
I have agencies who call requesting repeat deliveries of blankets because there is a need for them in comforting children who are ill are in a challenging situation. Without this “Small, but Mighty” group of blanketers I could not meet these requests. Their talent, kindness, and generosity continues to inspire my efforts as the Chapter Coordinator of Humboldt Project Linus.
