COVID-19 UPDATE Feb 26, 2022

Feb 26, 2022 | COVID-19 UPDATES, News

Due to the prolonged situation with COVID-19 we are still unable to accept squares at the present time.  If you choose to continue making squares, please hold on to them for now. We are not accepting them at this time and our volunteers are not meeting to assemble the squares into afghans.

Although it feels as though things are starting to open up around us, safety protocols are still in place everywhere and the afghan program itself could take longer to return to the hospital because of infection control. Once it is safe to do so for everyone involved in the program, we will begin accepting them again. Please subscribe to our mailing list so that we can notify you of when intake of the squares resumes. We are continually monitoring the situation and will also post an update once the situation improves. 

Thank you for your contributions, understanding, and patience. Be safe everyone.
