When I contacted the social worker who requested the bags she mentioned that the kids really loved the blankets.
Blankets? We didn’t do blankets. And then there were toothbrushes and toothpaste. We didn’t do that either.
But being a sucker for helping others, I am putting it out there to see if there are any Girl Scout groups or others who might be interested in buying, cutting and tying polar fleece blankets to put inside our bags or donate some toothbrushes and toothpaste.
It could be a great reason for a spring break party for kids and we would be happy to let another group make the delivery and see where the bags are going if you would like. I guess we are looking for a partner or two who would help us keep up the standards of the project without being too much at one time for one group.
It’s been 3 years since 40 bags were given to Carver County so we don’t have to get them all done at once. The response from all of you has been fantastic. At the time of this writing Nancy has sewn 6 bags, Pam picked up 4 and Barb 2. Lisa wants to make them and has enlisted her daughter, sister and niece and we have three people coming on Monday to work on the project.
Thanks so much!!
