Make Blankets - Offsite Projects
Many of the children at Star of Hope have experienced more tragedy in their young lives than most of us can imagine. They arrive at our shelter anxious & afraid of what another day holds. Your blankets provide comfort & security as our children snuggle up in the soft, warm fabric giving hope that tomorrow will indeed be a better day! Blankets can be machine-stitched, fleece no-sew, knitted or crocheted. Both child-size blankets & full-size, adult blankets are needed & greatly appreciated. When it's time for delivery, we can usually arrange a tour. Or you can simply label your donation "Blankets" & drop them off at (or mail to) Star of Hope's Donation & Distribution Center, 2320 Lamar Street, Houston, TX 77003.
