Please help make a difference in a child’s life here in the Austin Community!

We are an all-volunteer, national, non-profit organization that make blankets to comfort children who are sick, abused, underprivileged and homeless in Austin. Please reach out if you are interested in helping!

If you have a church group or scout troop that needs a project….this is a great one!  This is also a great project for community service hours. Contact me to find out how easy it is to make no-sew fleece blankets!

How can you help?

1). Volunteer your time to make blankets (fleece, crocheted, knitted, or quilted) and donate them to our chapter. We will then stitch a Binky Patrol label on the blankets and deliver them to local children in need of comfort. We accept all types of new handmade blankets.

2). Donate materials to make blankets including fleece, other fabric, batting, yarn, and other sewing supplies. Tax receipts are given for your donation.

3). Monetary donations can be made through the Binky Patrol National Office at   Please reference “Funds for Austin, TX Chapter” in the additional info text box on the donation form. Tax receipts are given for your donation.

Thank you in advance for your support.  It is very much appreciated.
