No Sew Fleece Blankets for our La Diferencia Terminally ill patients is great to do individually, as a family or as a team builder at work. Since most patients feel the cold more then heat, blankets all through the year are welcomed. The preferable blanket size would be a throw size (1.5 yard by 1.5 yard) simply because these blankets work better with patients who use a wheelchair. Purchase some fleece at your local nearby craft store and you are on your way to creating a blanket that will be cherished. A homemade fleece blanket many times becomes a family heirloom or a touch stone when a caregiver's loved one has passed. Please contact La Diferencia Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, Janet Garza if you need further instruction:(210) 516-5980. Also, for easy step-by-step instructions see link: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Fleece-Tie-Blanket.

If you are a student or person who is needing volunteer hours, we will provide you with verification of the hours you have taken to create these blankets to your school, club, church or any other organization.

Lastly, if you would just like to donate regular blankets, our patients are always in need.
