Our chapter provides handmade blankets to children — from infants to teens — through charities and hospitals in and around the Greater Twin Cities area of Minnesota as well as directly to children who have suffered a tragic loss. Between July 2006 and February 2017, the GTCA Chapter has provided handmade blankets to almost 50,000 children. That's a lot of BLANKET HUGS!  You can help by making a blanket too!

We accept new, handmade blankets of any kind knitted or crocheted, quilted, or single-layer fleece.  What makes them special is that they are handmade for our children and bring with them your caring and good wishes.
