Fresno/Central Valley Chapter

Kathleen Revoir, Area Coordinator;

Chapter established December 30, 2007

We’re a small group determined to make a difference in the lives of children and/or teens that are in need of comfort, wherever and whenever we can.

We are currently working in conjunction with “Kases for Kids” (…a non-profit, national organization that provides suitcases for children/teens who are in foster care. We are trying to make sure each of those children has a Binky to go into their very own suitcase.

Most recently our efforts have gone towards the babies born to the Inmates of the two Women’s Correctional Facilities in Chowchilla, California. We provide those infants with the warmth and coziness of a Binky to take with them wherever they may go.

We are always in need of volunteers with helping hands and loving hearts. We are also happy to accept donations of fabric, batting, yarn, fleece, or completed blankets.

We meet the second Saturday of each month from 10-11:30 am at Uncle Harry’s Bagelry on Cedar & Shaw in Fresno, 4950 N Cedar Ave, Fresno, CA 93726

If you know of any child who might benefit from one of our Binkies, please contact the area coordinator listed above.

We are fast approaching having delivered 1200 Binkies as of January 2010!!
