Epiphany Lutheran Church Blanket Buddies

Epiphany Lutheran Church Blanket Buddies is a group of ladies dedicated to crocheting and knitting blankets for babies who may not have someone to give them one. We expanded last year to help a pastor and friend of one of the members who is the Lutheran Chaplain at Univeristy of Maryland. She has a group of college students who mentor and tutor some elementary students in the Takoma Park area. Pastor Beth noted that some of these children did not have warm scarves and hats in the winter, wondering if we could help out. Our group embraced the idea and made nearly two hundred hats and scarves. Some of these scarves were given to the local Shepherd's Table for some of the clients who also did not have warm scarves for our weather.

Blanket Buddies has always "paid their own way", by the members buying the yarn and just donating it. We have been blessed with some donations, totaly unexpected but greatfully accepted. This past year, the Lutheran Thrivent Insurance organization contacted us and said they could provide us with money to buy some yarn. A group of very happy women purchased over $500.00 of yarn. We are now in the process of using the yarn, to again provide holiday gifts to the children, as well as continuing our mission of sharing the blankets for our little buddies. We are thankful for the gifts we have been given.
