Blanket Making Day for Kids (ages 4+) *Impact Week*

Binky Patrol Comforting Covers for Kids makes blankets for kids and teens that are homeless, ill, or experiencing trauma as a reminder that they matter, are not invisible and that someone cares
Spend the day with us making as many blankets as we can by sewing, cutting, and tying. Bring your machine, bring a team, bring your kids. There is something for everyone to do. Binky Patrol is 100% volunteer and has been missing in-person events. They are so much fun!
You MUST bring 1 pair of sharp scissors per person. You can also bring a sewing machine if you want to use it, extra needles, and thread. We will provide the fabric - although you can clean out your stash and donate it. We'd love that! You can also bring an iron and ironing board and extension cords. Bring a sack lunch, too!
We work hard at a constant pace and provide you with all of all steps to make a blanket. Usually we make 200 blankets in a day!
Parking is available at the school. The 54 Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy on TriMet also goes to the school. The project will take place the back gym at the high school. Enter the school property at the the east entereance at SW 3rd and Stott St and look for the Binky Patrol signs.
