“I just want a warm blanket.” That’s how a young girl responded when asked what gift she most wanted. Not a toy. Not a game. Just a warm blanket. Saturday November 5 a crew of volunteers will gather to make that wish come true for as many as 250 area kids.
Last year, KozyKids coordinator Joanna Bock organized the first “blanket bee”. Over 60 cutters, pinners, sewists, and packers turned a large supply of polar fleece into over 200 blankets for distribution through the Elves Program. Says Joanna, “We’ll make even more this year!”
Beyond the call for people with sewing experience, there are plenty of supporting jobs for anyone willing to lend the KozyKids Project a hand. If interested, contact Joanna Bock at 607-272-3669 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
