Helping Hands Volunteer Program
Helping Hands volunteers use their creative skills to create and donate handmade items (quilting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, etc.) based on the current needs of our patients. Please see below for a list of our current needs.
- Receiving blankets
- Quilted blankets
- Baby booties
These items are mainly used for patients undergoing chemotherapy at our cancer center and geriatric patients in H.E.L.P (Hospital Elder Life Program).
- Afghans (crocheted or knitted)
- Fleece blankets or quilted blankets
- Caps and/or scarves
- Ostomy bag covers
- Small heart-shaped pillows for our breast cancer patients to place under their arms after surgery
- Fidget or Sensory blankets
At this time, we are no longer accepting baby clothes and other non-blanket items not mentioned on our wish list.
