This September, we had the opportunity to deliver over 200 blankets to the Alta Bates Summit NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Since we began this project 15 years ago, we have continued to make deliveries made possible by our amazing volunteers in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Since we released a newsletter focusing on our community project this past July, we have received an overwhelming response. Many of our customers near and far have expressed an interest in getting involved in this amazing project.
This delivery was especially important because we had the opportunity to reconnect with NICU Clinical Specialist Alison Brooks. Alison was one of the founding members of the BLS project and it was amazing to see her again and be able to deliver blankets to her.

Thank you to Alta Bates Summit NICU and all of our volunteers who have made this project possible for 15 years!
Join us in sewing flannel blankets and scent dolls for babies in the NICU at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center! Fabric and notions will be provided for all volunteers. These simple, soft flannel blankets offer comfort to parents who are going through the stress of caring for a sick infant or who have lost a little one. Our goal is to have a blanket or scent doll for each of the over 1,200 newborns that are cared for each year, and you can help!
Organize a sewing day with your local sewing guild, school, or church group or sew them on your own.
Supplies are provided!
