Service Projects for Groups

Including professional, social, youth and support groups

 

Groups supporting YANA Cancer Comfort 1200x500 Community groups of any size, age or focus can participate in hand-tying blankets for cancer patients. All groups including scouts, high schools, and rotary clubs are welcome to hand-tie blankets.

Girl Scouts can earn their Bronze or Silver Community Service badge by organizing and participating in a YANA Cancer Comfort blanket-tying event. They can make blankets for kids or for adults.

The care packages, which include the no-sew fleece blankets, can be delivered locally to a cancer treatment center, hospital oncology center or cancer support group of the community group’s choice.
