  • 65 people are interested

Volunteers use their talents to create lap blankets for our terminally ill patients. Our patients enjoy the warmth and comfort a blanket can provide.

If you possess talents in sewing, quilting, crocheting, and knitting or in the making of blankets, please contact Dana Dillon, Volunteer Coordinator, at 732-974-2545 or simply send an e-mail to:

Please keep in mind that you are volunteering so we don't ask for a specific time commitment or blanket quota. We find that blankets around 36" by 36" are big enough to cover a lap yet small enough to not get caught in wheelchair wheels. Material and color are left up to you, the artist, but please keep in mind that some folks are allergic to wool.

Your time and talent will make a meaningful difference in the life of a hospice patient!
