September ~ Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

During the month of September we would like to honor one of our favorite little people.  Richard Culliver was a brave young man who battled brain cancer with a love of life and enthusiasm seldom seen.  He passed from this world last month and in memory and honor of him, the Binky Patrol (SC) will send all of our blankies (with the exception of Preemies) to Palmetto Children's Hospital for the month of September.  This is Richard pictured here with his best friend Smitty and one of the tied fleece blankets make by one of our wonderful volunteers.

If you would like to help with this project, please email us at  These blankets can be any size larger than 24 X 24 and can be knitted, crocheted, sewn or tied fleece.  Anything goes as long as they are safe.  The simple two sided blankets sewn together pillow case style are also excellent.  Pillow cases are another excellent project for the hospital and can really brighten a child's room.

Also - a reminder that Fall is around the corner and then winter.  Please consider sending in items to help local shelters keep the kids warm - together we can make a difference.

As always, we are so very grateful to all of the wonderful volunteers who keep us going.  Without you, there would be no Binky Patrol SC and each and every item donated makes a difference in a child's life.  We love you for all you do!!!
