Thinking about … the holidays!
Where has November gone?

 

Wasn’t it 80 degrees outside one day last week???

 

Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK (and I need to get my shopping done; at least I have a great helper in Jake … he LOVES the grocery store!).

 

 

Well, ready or not, the Christmas and Holiday rush is really going to start in earnest now.

 

So, if you haven’t already, would you please consider helping Jake to make the season a little brighter for kids who are not able to spend the holidays at home?  Jake is working hard to collect fleece to make blankets during the Dreams For Kids DC (DFKDC) upcoming

 

Jake and other DFKDC participants will transform into volunteers during this event, participating in activities (such as assembling blankets) that will benefit others in our community!

 

To date, Jake has collected about 5 1/2 yards of solid colored fleece and about 22 3/4 yards of printed fleece. 

 

He has enough print fleece to make a single side of 15 blankets (in sizes from toddler to young adult) and enough solid fleece to complete 3 blankets; would need 12 “matching” sizes of solid colors to make 15 total blankets.

 

Sizes of Printed Fleece
– 8 x 1 1/2 yards (need 7 solid pieces to complete)
– 2 x 1 2/3 yards (need 2 solid pieces to complete)
– 2 x 2 yards (COMPLETE)
– 2 x 1 yards (need 2 solid pieces to complete)
– 1 x 1 1/3 yards (need 1 solid piece to complete)
Jake will continue to collect fleece (or donations to purchase fleece) through December 16.

 

Please DM me or contact Glenda Fu if you are interested in donating to this project!
