Neighbors seek to bring comfort to those in crisis

November 20, 2021

Last year, a group of Bonners Ferry neighbors pitched in to provide 75 blankets to local senior living facilities. This year, they are working to provide blankets for the Boundary County Victim's Advocacy Program, where there is a definite need. These blankets will be given to bring a small measure of comfort to children and adults in crisis.

If you are interested in participating by either crocheting, knitting or quilting blankets approximately three feet by four feet in size, it would be much appreciated. Since winter is here, now is the perfect time to cozy own with some yarn or a small quilting project!

Their goal is to provide 50 blankets before the end of February.

"Last year we made a difference in a lot of lives with our donations to the seniors," neighbor Marianne Larkin said. "Due to the isolation caused by the pandemic, they were delighted to know our community was thinking of them!"

Donations can be dropped off at Bonners Ferry Veterinary Clinic, 6657 Main Street, Bonners Ferry. To learn more about participation or donations, email
