Dawn Sharp was and Area Coordinator and Regional Director for Binky Patrol for over three years.  Her chapter has been taken over by Deb Blondin of Kalamazoo.  She’s doing an incredible job.  We thought you would enjoy reading about this successful chapter’s beginnings.

Binky Patrol is devoted to reaching out to needy children, including HIV-positive, drug-addicated, neglected, abused, or children experiencing trauma in any way. Binky Patrol volunteers bring a caring loving touch by creating and delivering handmade blankets, “binkies”, to enrich the children’s lives and to meet their most basic needs of warmth, security and comfort. “Binkies” are distributed through hospitals, shelters, and social service agencies. The binkies are to be given as gifts and are not recycled in the agencies. Binky Patrol is looking for local volunteers and resources all the way from fabric, to yarn, to postage, etc. Do you want to be part of this wonderful effort?
