Hand knit blankets donated to fundraiser for seniors

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Blanket Project recently donated several hand knit and crocheted blankets and baby sets to the Foundation for Senior Care. These blankets will be some of the wonderful items in the silent auction at the foundation's upcoming "Aloha Music and Fundraiser" event Sept. 15, 5:30-8 p.m. at Monserate Winery.

The foundation will continue to welcome additional auction items, gift cards, etc. for this event; anyone wanting to donate something can call 760-723-7570.

The nonprofit Foundation for Senior Care provides assistance to seniors and disabled adults in the form of transportation (including wheelchair accessible rides), an adult day care program, computer and cell phone classes for seniors, advocacy services, helping to overcome obstacles as well as protecting and guiding seniors in many different ways.

Their support has, at times, been the critical link between a senior going hungry, being evicted, isolated or at risk, and thriving in a safer, supportive environment with the care that is needed. The foundation is supported totally by local citizens and businesses. Email [email protected] for more information.

Near Christmastime, the nonprofit Fallbrook Blanket Project also donates its hand knit/crocheted shawls, lap blankets, Afghans and twin-sized blankets for seniors in need. To become involved in this free group, email [email protected].
