PURPLE BLANKET PROJECT
The Purple Blanket Outreach: Flannel material is purchased and the edges are surged. The material is passed on to have the edges hand embroidered. The completed blankets are put in bags with either a hard cover book or a hat. Over 800 blankets have been given to the nursery at the hospital along with an informational CD and booklet explaining the Period of Purple Crying that challenge many parents when their infant cries uncontrollably during the first six months of a baby's life. Carol Barnes has taken on this project with love and devotion. If you are interested in sharing your special skills, please contact the church office 454-1309.
