Our fleece blankets are all made with love by traumatic brain injury survivors, caregivers and volunteers that come into the center. Making fleece blankets has many therapeutic benefits for survivors. They are able to increase their fine motor skills, processing skills and hand eye coordination. This program also helps to build confidence in our survivors, helps them enhance their socialization skills and gives them a purpose.
We have been making these blankets at the center and offering them to the community for the past 5 years through craft shows and open houses at the center. This is our largest fundraiser and all of the revenue is used to support our programming. We have had to move the fleece store online this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic. By moving the store online we are able to add an additional transition to work program for survivors to learn how to manage inventory, pull orders, package the orders and create shipping labels.
Thank you for your support!
