****NOW ACCEPTING BLANKETS FOR 2013****
In 2008, Stefenie Jacks began a project to provide blankets to children staying in an Iowa hospital. Having spent time there with her son–who was born with congenital heart defects–she knew how important it is to make hospitalized children feel more at home.
We are now extending Stefenie’s vision to our home state of Colorado. Our goal is to provide some comfort and to bring a smile and a feeling of home to struggling children and their families.
We are 3 mothers who met while our newborn sons were in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) at The Children’s Hospital in Denver, receiving care for different congenital heart defects. Shaina (son: Kimble); Teresa (son: Chance); and Julie (son: Adam) are now seeking to help other mothers and their children.
Acceptable Items For Donation
Fleece No Sew Knot Blankets
The blankets we collect will be donated to The Children’s Hospital of Denver where our sons received and continue to receive medical care.
We are now taking blankets for donation in 2013. If you would like to make a blanket donation or be a part of this project please contact us- our information can be found by clicking on the “Contact Us” link at the top of the page. We would love to hear from you!
Email us for drop off/mailing information, or we have a Denver drop-off location at Old Chicago Restaurant at 7961 South Broadway, Littleton, CO 80122
We hope you will support this project and share a touch of home with these special children and families!
