Volunteers use their talents to create lap blankets for our terminally ill patients. Our patients enjoy the warmth and comfort a blanket provides them.
If you possess talents in sewing, quilting, crocheting, and knitting or in the making of blankets, please contact Dana at 732-974-2545 or simply send an email through Volunteer Match.
Please keep in mind that you are volunteering so we don't ask for a specific time commitment or blanket quota. We just ask that you give what you can with your heart and your hands! Blankets can be 36" by 36", any material except wool, any design--we leave that up to you, the artist! We find that this size blanket is big enough to cover a lap yet small enough to not get caught up in wheelchair wheels.
