We are in constant need of donated baby blankets. Do you crochet or knit?
We are in constant need of handmade baby blankets - either knitted or crocheted. Volunteers are welcome to knit/crochet at their own pace. We do not require volunteers to complete a minimum number each month.
Your donated blankets will be offered in our keepsake boxes made available at our partnering hospitals. Rachel's Gift served nearly 1,000 families in 2018, and just over 1,100 so far in 2019. We anticipate a need for at least 1,600 blankets in 2020. However many you are willing to donate, we will gratefully accept!
Blankets donated in 2019:
We ask that you please follow our blanket guidelines as outlined below.
Blanket sizes do not have to be exact, but 21 in. x 21 in. is perfect. If you are having trouble scaling down a beloved pattern, no bigger than 25 in. x 25 in. so the blankets will fit in our keepsake boxes.
Pale blues, pinks, and purples, either by themselves or mixed with white. Mixed pastels that include pink or blue. Baby yarn is preferred for its softness.
