Apologies for not getting in touch with all of you earlier in the month by blog. Just want to assure you that the work is going on. Blankets are coming in from many of you who are staying home and using that home time to sew. Wonderful blankets have been submitted over the past month. Patsy and I have been able to keep up our distribution at the same level as before corona virus trapped us all. We simply have a new way of functioning.
We have been happy to pick up from the porches of blanket makers to collect the amazing blankets they have been creating. They have been labeled, packaged, and delivered to children all over the Wasatch front.
For example, the Children’s Justice Center in West Jordan has received blankets and has been especially appreciative in recognizing your work on their face book page. Your blankets are given to the children who experience the traumatic forensic examinations. The comfort of the security blanket at this stressful time in their lives is especially important. A picture from their face book page here:
Maybe you were close to the accidental plane crash into a house in West Jordan. We were asked by the coordinator in Virginia to be sure that the 3-year old boy (Cody) who survived that crash would get a blanket. That was done and I hope it gives him some comfort as he recovers from the burns he sustained.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you sometime soon and meeting together soon. Missing our fun days chatting, looking over each other’s work, and generally socializing. Sometime soon we hope. In the meantime, keep up the important work. Rest assured that our mission is still successful, and we are all devoted to helping kids cope by making sure they have a security blanket to cuddle with.
Hugs, Millie and Patsy
