Thank You Home Crafters!!

To all of you who volunteer your time and talent knitting and crocheting beautiful blankets that RSVP donates to those in need, we want to let you know about a recent donation to a not-for-profit called “We Care Blankets.” This amazing organization donates blankets to local hospitals, as well as hospitals all across America. The blankets provide comfort and support to very ill children. Last month, RSVP Coordinator, Terri Catania, delivered 92 of your blankets (pictured) to the Director of this agency, Tamara Baker. She was so grateful and extends her sincere thanks to every one of you!
