Foster care program seeks to provide fleece blankets

Life can be difficult on foster children moving from home to home. But something as simple as fleece blankets can make all the difference.

The Volunteer Center at Central Michigan University and Isabella County Foster Care want to provide fleece blankets for every child in the foster care system. That includes more than 200 children.

Selene Wadhawan, a representative with the Isabella County Department of Human Services, said the organization is aiming for 300 blankets.

"When we're removing children from homes, they often don't have very many things to make them feel warm and comfortable," Wadhawan said.

How to donate
Students can donate money or fleece material to the Volunteer Center in the lower level of the Bovee University Center. The blankets are two-by-two yards in size and are fairly inexpensive to make.

Wadhawan said the initiative to obtain fleece blankets is lead by a youth board called Helping Others Prepare for Everything. The board consists of young adults in the foster care system.

"We've had a variety of different volunteer to donate money and time and actually make fleece blankets for us," Gingrich said.

Macomb senior Scott Hillman volunteered to make some blankets and said the effort is worthwhile. "It's a project that doesn't require a lot of time," Hillman said. "It impacts the local community."

Other items, such as caps, towels and clothing, are also accepted. We still wait for many donating material for contribution. Appeal to help for far and near.
