On behalf of the children and youth at Parkerville Children and Youth Care, I extend sincere appreciation to your group for the lovely blankets and quilts that you donated to us. The children have taken great delight in choosing their own blanket for their bedroom.
As a not for profit agency that cares for our State’s most vulnerable and abused children and youth, we are continually indebted to community support. The number of children and youth who require out-of-home care is increasing and their needs are more demanding. Their developmental, social, psychological and emotional issues present through no fault of theirs but rather as a result of the trauma they suffered from abuse and neglect.
Parkerville Children and Youth Care looks forward to a positive year working with children, youth and families. Our goal is for outcome focused care for our children and adolescents. Thank you for making a difference.

I just wanted to say thank you for the "komfort4kids" blankets you donated
to Granny Spiers as gifts for children who were in need of some extra love
This is a wonderful project -please pass on our congratulations and thanks
to the project managers and your volunteers for developing such a creative
and loving way of showing children how much you care.
The blankets have been warmly and gratefully accepted by families who use
our centre; in fact we have only one left.
If it's possible to obtain more of these blankets we would greatly

Just wanted to let you know that the blankets have been wonderful comforters for children who have recently come into care over the last few months. In particular, two little boys aged 6 and 11 who arrived in a foster placement with nothing but the clothes they were in have been given blankets which is fantastic. They had to move on from the initial emergency foster placement to another placement yesterday, and I hope that the blankets will be a comfort for them, and help them to settle in.
Our supply has run quite low, so I was wondering if you were able to provide some more for us to give to our kids. We have two baby blankets, and two blankets for older children left. If you have blankets that would suit toddler to older child that would be great. We seem to have a lot of children aged 5 to 10 who are being placed in care at the moment.
Look forward to hearing from you,
