Our church members have been making throw blankets for the pediatric department at the Allegheny General Hospital for the past 11 years.
Our project began small with our Adventurer children wanting to help less fortunate children. It has grown to include a majority of the congregation at various levels of involvement.
We tie blankets the first Saturday afternoon of each month following the Fellowship meal. The blankets are then washed, bagged with a small story book and delivered to the childhood specialist at Allegheny General Hospital. The church makes between 600-800 blankets each year.
We accept monetary donations toward the purchase of fleece and always are looking for willing hands to assist in the tying. Please join us if you are interested in supporting this caring ministry.
