BLANKETS 4 KIDS
In January 2014, the Airdrie 1st Club (formerly Airdrie Lioness Hamper Foundation) created a new program called the Blankets 4 Kids Program.
A Hug You Can Take With You
Airdrie is not yet equipped to care for our really sick kids so they are often sent to the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Children from birth to just over one year will be in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), and those from one month to 17 years of age will be in the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit).
How Do We Make These
Once or twice a year a group of the Airdrie 1st Club members
One or two of our members will keep their eyes open for deals
On the night that we get together to make the blankets,
In groups of 3-5 we will work at a station and in the course of an evening each team will make 4 to 6 blankets. They are very easy to make once instruction is given.
This is an evening that many of our members look forward to
