Annual Blankets for Cancer Patients Campaign

August 13th, 2014 | Tags:

The EAP Committee will once again be sponsoring a “Craft Day” to make blankets for area patients suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses. The blankets will be distributed to local hospitals, clinics and Catskill Area Hospice. We will have “crafting” sessions as we did the past few years to assemble the blankets. No sewing skills are required.

The first step though is to raise funds to purchase materials to make the blankets. Monetary donations can be sent to Laura Emmett, EAP Chair, 200 Netzer. Please make checks payable to OAS/EAP. We have supplies for 20 blankets and we are hoping to reach our goal of 75 by the end of September, in order to distribute the blankets in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Once we have raised the funds, we will order supplies and set the dates for assembling, so stay tuned!

If you have questions please call Laura Emmett (EAP Chair) at x 3114 or Melissa Nicosia (EAP Coordinator) at x 2452.
