Blanket drive for Children’s Hospital

CHEEKTOWAGA – Supervisor Diane Benczkowski, Senator Tim Kennedy, and other community groups have partnered together to collect blankets for kids at Women and Children’s Hospital.

Ms. Benczkowski’s office says pediatric patients of all ages are in need of warm, fuzzy blankets to improve their stay at Children’s Hospital. The community can purchase or make a brand new blanket today to donate. Cleanliness is important so only new blankets will be accepted.

The collection box is located on the ground floor of Town Hall between the tax office and assessor’s office.  The blanket collection will run through January 31st. 

All donations will benefit the patients at the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital.
