This is a great project especially for mom and kids to make no-sew fleece blankets that will be dontated to children in Nortons Children's Hopital, New Albany.  These blankets will be for babies and boys. 

You'll need to bring your own fleece fabric and a pair of scissors.  

You'll be given instructions on ServeDay on how to make the blanket.  No skills necessary (except for using scissors).

Meet in the Lobby (Atrium) Area of Northside's main building.

about this mission:

The blankets will go with Northside Teams and be distributed to Kosair Children's Hospital

Team TLC is a caring group of volunteers from Northside who monthly visit hospitalized children at Nortons Children's Hospital. The group often takes crafts, games, and gifts as they show the love of Christ to this kids and their families during this difficult time.

If you are interested in joining Team TLC, talk to the project leader, Karen Ballard.
