Volunteer Sewing: Binky Patrol

This weekend, I’ll sew for Binky Patrol, a fabulous organization that gives blankets to needy children aged 0 to 18.

From their website…

We are an all-volunteer, national, non-profit organization making and distributing homemade blankets to children born drug-addicted, infected with AIDS or who are battling other chronic & terminal illnesses, homeless, victims of violent crimes, those who are abused, in foster care, or experiencing trauma of any kind.

I’m also blessed to work for a company encouraging employees to volunteer. Each year, they give us eight hours to volunteer for an organization. I’ve used those hours I’ve been at the company each year, so this makes my third year. While I have plenty of fleece fabric at home, I’ll go to Jo An Fabrics this weekend and purchase some more fabric to make fleece blankets. I took off Monday so that I could do some volunteer sewing.
