Wrapping Seniors in Love for the Holidays
Here's a community campaign to provide blankets to seniors in Nursing Homes. The woman that started this is truly amazing.

Handmade lap blankets needed for Seniors in Nursing Homes on the Eastside (king County) in Washington during the Holiday Season!

Can a simple act of kindness change one person's life? - Yes it can!
Many seniors in nursing homes are alone, without family and without some holiday cheer. Please help us make a difference in the lives of Seniors in Washington Nursing Homes, by donating a hand knitted or crocheted wrap (lap blanket) as a holiday gift to Acknowledge, Remember and Honor them during the holiday season

Deadline: December 10th
Size: no larger than 5 x 5 ft
Colors preferred: Warm colors – no black please
Must be machine washable!

Blankets can be sent directly to
