Calling All Crafters!
 

Each family that enters shelter receives a welcome bag with essentials like hygiene products. These kits include fleece tie blankets - we are currently running very low on blankets, especially for children and boys.

If you are crafty, or are looking for a fun project to do, please consider making fleece tie blankets for children staying at the Family Center.

For more information, call Lauren at 715-421-1511 or reach her at lauren@familyctr.org.
