Toys for Tots: Blanket donation

Local News

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – We’ve already gotten lots of toys for our annual Toys for Tots drive. But we still have a long way to go!

Tuesday morning a group of nursing students from Elms College dropped off dozens of blankets at our 22News studios. They told 22News about 60 members of the Student Nurses Association joined together to make these blankets by hand for our Toys for Tots drive.

“This year, we decided to give a whole bunch of them to you guys and Toys for Tots. Kids can actually use them and enjoy them. It’s something we can easily make and produce a lot of. Then, a lot of children can have nice warm, comfy blankets.”
