OSLC Blanket Day
We are planning to meet together at OSLC on April 11th from 10:00am to 1:00pm. On that day we will be happy to receive the blankets you have made during the last month. Also we will plan to spend the time making fringe fleece blankets. Remember the church still requires mask wearing. See you then.
Riverton Group Blanketeers
Mountain Vista Methodist Church has been sharing its space used for weekly quilting, with our blanket making group on a once a month basis. This blanket making day is usually on the 3rd Wednesday from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. For details contact group leader Jackie Cohen at: Jacalyntools@hotmail.com. This is a great chance to share and make new friends.
Patsy Bueno has organized an amazing successful program at this Hospital. The program is coordinated by Kristine Hatton - Child Life Program. This involves blankets for all children in every area of the hospital, from emergency room, in patient care, including ICU and NICU areas. The definition of child-care is from birth to age 18. “The child first and always”
From the hospital:
“On behalf of the patients who will benefit from your generosity, thank you for your thoughtful donations. With appreciation, David L Flood, President - Intermountain Foundation.”
There are so many kids who are needing to find comfort in a new home and sometimes even in a new country. We are trying to get security blankets to these kids thru the Utah Refugee Connection. That program is going well and we are so happy to participate.Happy Spring
