Many thanks to all the volunteers who came out to Summit Lodge and helped make over 150 blankets last night at the annual Blankets for Babies event. The idea of Summit Lodge getting involved with the Christ Child Society (CCS) for Blankets for Babies started at a dinner party four years ago where I met Lambi Newsham, who serves on the board of CCS. As Elks National Foundation Grant Coordinator, I applied for a Grant for Summit Lodge to provide the materials for blankets and to hold an event at our Lodge and we were approved.
Since then Blankets for Babies has blossomed. I want to thank Lambi and all the wonderful women of the organization who provide warmth and love for so many needy children and newborns.
