This is posted from one of our organizations we deliver to.

My name is Jasmine Fraijo and I am the Programs Director at a nonprofit organization, Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance, in Roseville, CA. Our mission is to support children with cancer and their families with emotional, educational, and financial support while increasing awareness and funding research toward a cure.

As a part of our Family Navigator Program services, we offer joy-filled experiences to families touched by childhood cancer. As an initial touch to families, we offer a "Hope Chest" (family care package) which includes a personalized blanket for the kiddo in treatment, as well as personalized goodies such as toys, books, educational items and more for them and their siblings.

At this time, we have a severe need of blankets for teen boys.

I am in reaching out in hopes of getting more information as to how we can possibly receive blankets from volunteers to support our mission and fulfill this need.

If you are interested in helping by making the no-sew fleece blankets, sew quilts or other types of super soft and TALL (6 feet tall by 48 wide) - PLEASE respond and you can send them directly to Jasmine.
