In 2020, we at Discount Fabric Warehouse have teamed up with Hawai’i Care Choices (previously known as Hospice of Hilo) to collect homemade lap blankets to be included in care packages for new Hospice patients. Since then, we’ve collected hundreds of wonderfully crafted blankets for donation. We appreciate all of the care and love that has gone into each and every one of the blankets that we have been able to pass on to Hawai’i Care Choices.
This year’s Lap Blanket Drive has arrived! Through August 31, 2022, we will be collecting homemade lap blankets for donation. You will receive a $5 Discount Fabric Warehouse gift certificate for each donation as a thank you for your generosity.
If you and your group would like to host a sewing party to create blankets for donation, please let us know. We will provide the space, machines, and materials. You just need to provide the instruction for those who need it and the enthusiasm to make the blankets. All blankets will be donated at the end of the session. For more information, please contact your nearest Discount Fabric Warehouse store to discuss availability.
We hope to continue to be able to provide Hawai’i Care Choices with beautiful blankets for their Hospice patients in the coming years. If you or someone you know has ever had a loved one in Hospice, you know that a small thing like a homemade blanket can make a big difference. We hope that you’ll share your sewing or crafting talents with us and contribute a blanket or two.
