Something Kind

Make a fleece blanket for a child

You can make a fleece blanket for a child in need — no needles required — through the Kalamazoo Public Library’s Fleece, Love and Kindness program.

The program, which began in March and runs through May 31, is a blanket drive in which you create the cozy comfort. Free, no-sew fleece blanket kits are available for pickup at the KPL locations. Bring the finished blanket back to the

Central Library or one of its branches and it will be passed along to a charity for a child, or pass it on yourself to someone in need of kindness.

To get a kit, call KPL at 553-7800.
