If you have clean cotton fabric left over from some of your projects, we can make special use of these leftovers.
The Volunteer Auxiliary of Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital uses cotton or flannel to create small patient pillows to comfort them on their recovery.
Since we are making small pillows, fabric scraps need to be at least 21 inches by 12 inches. Please note we do sterilize all donated fabric before use and distribution to the patients.
Can I buy and donate fabric?
YES, we appreciate all fabric donations. Nice children’s fabric with cute characters always appreciated as we hope these characters bring a smile to the child staying in the hospital.
