Help me help local nursing homes and hospices

Recommended Posts

I am trying to help out several nursing homes, hospices and a residential care facility in my area and I could really use some help. Here is the list (so far) of needs at these places.

 

We need:

6" or 12" squares for lapghans (may also be used for Project Linus blankets), if you have some of other sizes I will also take them.

 

Lapghans, lap robes or blankets A good size for lapghans is about 3' X 4' or somewhere in that vicinity.

 

**Wheelchair or walker totes** (This is what really made their eyes light up)

 

Summer weight Chemo Caps

 

The residential care facility asked for hats, scarves and mittens for next winter.

 

One nursing home also said they could use items that could be sold in their Country Store, the proceeds go to their activity fund.

Bumping this for Deb. I am working on a few walker totes.

I'm using this pattern

Anyone want to join in?

 

I wanted to have a look at the tote, but the link isn't working. I may not be able to help out right away, but in a couple of weeks I might be able to. I am swamped with commitments and promises at the moment, that I have to keep or I will go bonkers.
