Organization Information

Mission Statement

Binky Patrol is devoted to reaching out to needy children, including HIV-positive, drug-addicted, neglected, abused, or children experiencing trauma in any way. Binky Patrol volunteers bring a caring, loving touch by creating and delivering handmade blankets, "binkies", to enrich the children's lives and to meet their most basic needs of warmth, security and comfort.

Binky Patrol's unique way of touching a child's life includes many mediums. To reach them, "binkies" are distributed through hospitals, shelters, and social service agencies. "Binkies" are to be given as gifts and are not recycled in the agencies.

Description

Binky Patrol's volunteers as well as chapter leaders make blankets which can be crocheted, sewn, knitted, tied, and even quilted for ill and traumatized children.

This program is a fun way to teach kids how they can help out needy kids.It's hard for kids to find ways to help because of their age. Samantha makes it enjoyable at the meetings the kids have fun helping the community.Everyone deserves a warm hug from a comfy blanket.Binky Patrol is a great way to help the community no matter the age!
