Villa Marconi-Looking for Blankets

Good morning,

I received this message from Villa Marconi and am reaching out to see if there are individuals who can fill this task. Presidents of Associations-can you share this with your membership and if anyone can help out Villa, their contact person is Rosanna Falco who is copied on this email. Rosanna can also be reached

at: 613-727-6201

We are looking to see if anyone can knit or crochet lap blankets for our residents. ( Usually we gift this to a new admission when they enter Villa Marconi)  Our regular volunteer is not doing this anymore and we are looking to see if anyone can make or donate them as a project.  Would you be able to see this out if you know of anyone.

Thank you / Grazie
