Thank you so very much for allowing us to participate with Wrapped in Love! And many more thanks goes to all of your dedicated master blanket makers. Our Hillman Volunteers are so pleased to be a part of the” Wrapped in Love “ campaign, because of the joy such a beautiful and unexpected gift as a handmade blanket. The response from the patients is as heart- warming as blankets themselves!
There are hundreds of patients that come to receive chemotherapy every week. Because there are more patients than blankets available, the Wrapped in Love blankets are distributed weekly to these treatment patients by way of a lottery. Wrapped in Love is a gift that keeps on giving. As each time a blanket is used by the recipient, they recall the blessing of being “Wrapped in Love.” We hope that your foundation continues to grow as the word spreads about the joy and comfort you bring to so many people.
God bless you and all the dedicated members who craft and support Wrapped in Love.
Sincerely,
Peg Ridings

The Women’s Cancer Center at Magee was fortunate to receive about 50 blankets from Wrapped in Love. They came just before the holidays and the staff had a great time handing out “gifts” to our patients. The patients were very grateful and so surprised that there are so many wonderful volunteers who care enough to make these beautiful blankets. They had fun choosing from so many different patterns…it was like they were out shopping. Thank you and all of your volunteers for warm hearts and warm blankets.

You can’t believe how much our patients have appreciated the blankets. Several of our patients who have had to return to the hospital for a variety of reasons have brought their blankets with them stating that it not only brings them warmth, but comfort too. Keep up the good work!

The patients that we serve through the Look Good –Feel Better Program are thrilled to get the blankets from Wrapped in Love. At a time in their lives when they need all the comfort they can get, these blankets are the perfect “Extra” gift! Our volunteers comment often about how pleased they are to help us distribute the blankets and how much they are appreciated.

Thank you so very much for my beautiful blanket. I couldn’t believe it , when during my chemotherapy they asked me if I wanted one for free! It is always so cold on the chemo floor, so I enjoyed the warmth of the blanket while thinking of the thoughtful, generous and kind person who made it. D.K.
