Knit or Crochet Baby Blankets and Hats

Volunteers who love to knit or crochet are needed to help make baby blankets and hats for the New York Milk Bank. These cozy items will be included in gift baskets that are delivered to new moms. Blankets should be just large enough for a stroller or car seat (about 30 x 30 inches or 36 x 36 inches). All colors are accepted, but gender-neutral is always appreciated. Matching hats should be sized for newborns to one-year-olds. The New York Milk Bank is the first comprehensive nonprofit milk bank based in New York State. It collects milk from carefully screened donors, pasteurizes it, and distributes it to infants in New York State and the surrounding area.
