Project: Making no-sew fleece blankets for St. Luke's Hospital's Pediatric and NICU Ward.
We will also begin collecting orders for the Gems of Hope "Hope Blooms" fundraiser. Gems of Hope is a Cedar Rapids non-profit with a mission of bringing hope to cancer patients and their families. This is the “Hope Blooms” fundraiser which allows faculty, staff, and students to purchase daffodils for themselves or there is an option to send a bouquet that will be delivered anonymously to a cancer patient receiving treatment in the community. Orders will be accepted until February 5th and delivered weather permitting on March 12th. This was formerly the Daffodil Days fundraiser that we have done in previous years for the American Cancer Society.
