Are you looking for a project that you can do on your own time?

Make Fleece blankets for Hospice patients! People that are suffering with a terminal illness are chilly all year long.

Fleece tie blankets are simple to make. They are lovely and they are warm. Plus, they have the bonus of fidget ties on the edges for our memory care patients! Bright colors and friendly patterns can add cheer to a nursing facility room and bring a smile to our patients.

Blankets are accepted at the Westmont office or can be coordinated to be picked up when you have completed them. Volunteers are asked to provide their own supplies.

Making blankets is an excellent Community group project for schools, churches and businesses that are looking for a way to give back in their community. Holiday/winter blankets and designs are in demand as we move into the season

Apex staff support is available to teach blanket making and explain hospice care to the group in an age appropriate manner.

Groups would need to provide 2 to 3 yards of fleece per blanket, sharp scissors and tables or clean floors for working spaces. We suggest 2 people to make each blanket unless you are making them at home with no time constraints.

Make a warm difference today!
