Blankets Drive at Sam’s Club

Bangor -

BANGOR -  Comforting Blankets is having a blanket drive at Sam’s Club. We would like to be able to keep a supply of blankets at Cancer Care of Maine (CCOM) and also to have a supply for the new born babies in the NICU and the babies and kids of the PICU and Grant 8. To be able to start this, we need to be able to collect 500 blankets. Blanket drive at Sam’s Club in Bangor from 10am to 5pm on June 10th for Comforting Blankets. The goal is to collect 500 blankets. The blankets can be crib size or lap size up to 50 X 60 or all ages. The blankets can be any type; home made or store made. Please make sure that the blankets are new and unused, many of the patients are immune compromised and only can have new items. The patients know that the blankets come from the heart and when making a blanket they don’t have to be perfect. For more information contact Bobbie Dumond at 207 735 7309. Email bdumond@comfortingblankets.org If unable to make it the day of the blanket drive, please drop off your blankets at 121 Gilman rd. Bangor Me. If you need directions please call Bobbie Dumond.
