We had approximately 20 volunteers who completed 16 blankets that are made of fleece with fun themes for children.   The blankets are being donated to the YWCA York’s ACCESS York program.  This program is a domestic abuse shelter in York that has intake safe houses for women and their children who are displaced due to violence.  The children will be given  a reusable bag that will contain a blanket, and age appropriate book, and a stuffed animal.  There are different bags for boys and girls and different age groups.  The bags with the blankets will be presented to Jean Treauthart, a Downtown York Rotarian and the execuative director of YWCA York’s Access York program, on May 9, 2018 at our weekly meeting.
