Immediate Need for Blankets
 
Hi everyone! :waving:

I just received a request from my local domestic violence shelter. (The Treehouse Children's Advocacy Center)

They need child-size and teen-size blankets for their exam room. Their supply is running low.

Some of you may remember when I donated two of our Oddball Lapghans to that agency.

Our Blankets Have a New Home by Shandeh, on Flickr

Now, those shelves are not so full of blankets and toys.

The toys and blankets are given to children and teens when they have their physical exam after an abusive event. Some of them have never even gone to the doctor before, so they are very anxious. The blanket and toy really helps them relax...and they get to keep both when the exam is over.

If you would like to donate a blanket, lapghan, or throw, please let me know. I am willing to accept squares, and seam them together for this need.

Shandeh, I have several crocheted squares that I did over 10 years ago, thinking I would make a sampler blanket. I don't remember how many, but I know where they are and will get them out tomorrow and mail them to you, if you want them. :happydance: I also have a small crochet blanket--(I was making a baby blanket; I like mine on the big side)--and I ran out of yarn. :aww: I can finish the last skein I have and will send that to you, also. I don't know how big it will be--its 38" wide and 27" long right now and I have at least 3/4 of a skein to go. It's white, green, pink, and lavender. I can also remember starting a knit blanket, but that will take some finding--I will look, tho. :knitting:

If you will PM me your address when you think about it, I will get these things together. :thumbsup:

Hi Jan! :waving:
No deadline. They always need blankets. The center is located just a few miles from my house, so I will gladly seam together blankets and deliver them. I will stop delivering blankets when they tell me they have enough. I could send extra blankets to other charities I knit for (Pine Ridge Reservation and Yurok Tribe).
