Our Blanket Has Been Delivered!


Today, I took our blanket to the Tree House Children's Advocacy Center in Monroe, NC.

They were so pleased to receive our blankets (I also gave them Oddball Lapghan #1). They also gave me a full tour of their facility! They are an awesome organization, and do excellent work with battered children and teens.

Our blanket has found a perfect home now. :)

Here you can see our blanket in my hands, as our Lapghan #1 is held by Pamela Caskey, the South Region Director for United Family Services in Monroe.

Here we are again, in the Tree House exam room, nicely decorated with toys. The children choose a toy when they finish their physical exam. :)
Our Blankets Have a New Home

Pamela showed me one of the handmade quilts that has been donated there. The children and teens choose a blanket before they start their exam, and they get to keep the blanket forever. Pamela says that sometimes the children are clutching their blanket when they come back for a follow-up appointment. It's nice to know that our blanket will be appreciated there!
