Calling all knitters, quilters and other crafters. Hosparus Health of Barren River is in need of care blankets to comfort patients and families in Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson and Warren counties.

Hosparus Health provides care, comfort and support to seriously ill patients, as well as their caregivers. Many take great comfort from blankets that are made by loving hands and donated to Hosparus Health. When a patient dies, these care blankets become a lasting gift to the family, often holding special memories. Quilted, crocheted, knitted, or fleece tie blankets are welcome for both female and male patients of all ages. They should be no larger than 3’ X 4’ and must be clean, in new condition, free of odors or fragrances (smoke free, no scented detergent or fabric softener), and free of pet hair.

Hosparus Health is especially in need of patriotic-themed blankets to honor military veteran patients and their families.

For more information or to donate a blanket or quilt, contact Jessica Briley at 270.418.3715 or jbriley@hosparus.org.
