Many groups -families, sewing circles, faith community groups- give us quilts/caps. We appreciate these generous gifts. They are distributed to: NICU, Children's Hospital, Coordinated Treatment Center, RMCC, EDU, Rehab and Red River Advocacy Center. We request the following:
* all quilts need to be at least 36" square, even those given to the NICU
* blankets need to be quilted or fleece, not knit or crocheted (these don't stand up in the laundry as well)
* Chemo caps - these caps protect the very fragile scalps of patients who have undergone treatment. Preferred are cloth caps from VERY soft fabric. Knit caps are acceptable when soft, baby yarn is used. Heavy, winter-type caps get too warm for the patients.
* all donations are handled by Volunteer Services for distribution due to privacy concerns for our patients
* only items from homes with no pets/no smoking accepted.

Requirements:
Aged 17 and up.

Visit patients currently in our hospital to ensure they have had a chance to complete his/her Story Card questions. As you are visiting with the patient be sure to scan their room to check the bedside is tidy and items they may need are within reach. While straightening the room be sure to notice any areas of concern and let nursing staff know. By interacting with the patients in a kind and respectful manner they will feel more at ease while in our facility.
