A video recap of the KINDNESS CARDS we delivered during the 2020 pandemic.
Take a quick peek at some of the cards that were given in 2020 for a great example of what to create today!
Gather together soft fleece (anti-pill) material and spend time creating a soft, comforting blanket to donate. Our blankets range in different sizes. A common size is 1.5 yards by 1.5 yards of fabric. You will also need a ruler and scissors. That's it!
This is a great family project to work on together. For us, some blankets took us around 40 minute's to complete. Any hours spent on this at home can be signed off for service hours by KIDS CARE when the blankets are given to us.
We typically have different programs running throughout the year and the blankets can benefit these programs or they may be delivered on a special as need basis as we monitor our communities' needs.
In collaboration with Building Strong Horizons, we have donated 134 no-sew blankets to children battling cancer at CHOA Scottish-Rite in Atlanta. We look forward to giving more comfort to other vulnerable populations. Perhaps even gifting some blankets to our local homeless community members. You can watch a short video on our YouTube channel to see us at work: https://youtube.com/shorts/TTW19pch6Yw?feature=share
