We need soft cozy blankets of any size, color and patterns. Think children aged Infant to late teens. Hats, again all colors and sizes, must be cozy and soft no hard brims or hard scratchy materials. Socks, slipper socks, scarves and gloves. All must be new, clean and ready to make a child warm and cozy!
When Nitalia was being treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. TN., she new first hand how cold the kids would get during their treatments… especially radiation. So she asked her grandmom Conti if she could crochet some blankets for her friends at the hospital. Well, grandmom Conti did just that! She and several of her friends around the country made cozy homemade blankets for the kids…and Nitalia hand delivered thousands of them!
Over the last 4 years, (every Christmas and Spring season) we have delivered thousands of Nitalia’s Blankets to childrens hospitals across the country. Nitalia started this when she was a patient at St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
Now for the blankets…
We had a GREAT 2011-2012! Thank you to all that helped support, make, deliver, and pay for the OVER 3000 Purple Packages that were hand delivered to kids in the hospital fighting cancer!! We are looking forward to an EVEN BETTER year next year!!!
The 2011 Nitalia’s Blanket Delivery!
How else can I help ?
Please pass our website address along to your friends, neighbors, religious fellowships, Post a sign in your local craft store, Supermarket, Day Care Center, Gym, ect. , and then become a blanket drop off or collection site for us. Start your own Nitalia’s Blankets group, gather your friends and family and get together to make blankets, or to collect, sort and send them to us.
This is a wonderful way for teenagers to do some community service, and another way for families and friends to get together and share in the hope of this project.
