Putting together a Hope Tote involves clothes, hygiene products, packers and delivery volunteers and of course our sponsors who donate the $50 to $75 needed to complete one tote. But there’s a part of every tote for those terrified children age 6 and under that money simply can’t buy. Handmade blankets!
We need some crafty people who can knit, sew or quilt a handmade blanket (or two) for the smallest of children. We include a handmade blanket in each of their totes as our way of saying that they’re not alone and there are people who care in this world enough to sit down and use their own time and their own hands to make something warm and personal that no one else will have. Can you help?
