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.

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.
