Good advise.Jalsh said:Hi Reesie, I'm from IL too. The Hines VA is a good place to donate to. It's better if the lap blanket is not so long or wide that it will get tangled in the wheeels. Usually what the patients do is use them around their head and shoulders or up by their chest because if they are paralyzed they don't feel their legs anyway. You can always call the spinal unit there. They can get you in touch with other volunteers.
And red, white and blue is ALWAYS the first to go. Machine washable. Any pattern!
