The community is invited to gather on Sunday, December 3 at 11:15 a.m. at Holy Spirit Church in Winfield to make fleece blankets. Holy Spirit Church is located at 7667 E. 109th Avenue, Crown Point, IN.
Along with sharp scissors, participants should bring two pieces of fleece, each two yards. No sewing is involved.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome. No experience is necessary. Experienced blanket-makers will help inexperienced volunteers.
When meeting with a Hope Center friend for the first time, volunteers present a Hope Tote filled with items that will bring comfort to patients who are undergoing long treatments in infusion rooms or hospital stays.
Donations of new soft hats, prayer shawls, Sodoku books, crossword puzzles, adult coloring books, pens, 5 x 7 journals, travel games and decks of cards are always accepted by Hope Center.
