If you would like to provide a child with a personalized handmade item, we are in need of fleece or quilted blankets.
All blankets and materials must be new. Blankets may be quilted or fleece. Softer fabrics are most used, however, any cotton based fabric is fine. The greatest need is for blankets that can be used by school age children or older such as 72'' No Sew Fleece Throw Kits bought at local fabric stores. Please store completed blankets in unscented plastic bag to keep them clean until delivery. Please do not store items in cardboard boxes.
Due to patient confidentiality and infection control, donated items are distributed by Children's staff. Unfortunately, individuals and groups are not allowed to distribute donated items to patients. Due to infection control all items must be new and unused in their original packaging. Please do not gift-wrap donated items.
For more information, call 214-456-6388 (Dallas) or 469-303-3763 (Legacy).
Delivery & Donation Form
Prior to delivering items, we ask that you complete a donation form and bring it with you when you deliver your donation. Please include an estimate of the number of hours it took for you to complete the project. The time spent on the project is used in our year end report. An example of how volunteers hours should be calculated is: 4 students spent 1 hour making busy books = 4 volunteer hours.
