They are in real need of blankets, as well as clothing, baby items etc. I already knit and sew items for them and offered blankets as the bushfire areas we had visited hadn't needed them, having already received quite a number from other groups. I was really surprised to find how many blankets that we had on hand, as well as some I had made. I kept some blankets back in case they were needed when we visit the bushfire areas again, but I prefer not to keep too many donations here when there is such a need in so many communities. I boxed up 60 blankets, many SB size as well as some bassinet and cot sized. I also donated 11 SB quilts as they don't accept baby quilts due to the risk of SIDS, and I also included baby wraps, clothing etc.
St Kilda Mums has a good reputation and I am confident that our donated items will reach those in need and bring comfort to them. Thank you everyone for helping me to help so many people in need with your very generous donations.
Hugs, Jan Mac
