Make Blankets for Kids


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 an 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 Health 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.
