In May, 2015, we donated 11 blankets, paired with more than 11 books, to the Austin, Texas Ronald McDonald House during the MLA annual meeting. Six of these blankets were forwarded on by Deniz Enders from the American Turkish Association of North Carolina Knitting Club members. Special thanks to Darlene Ennis at Dell Children’s in Austin, who made sure the blankets and books were delivered. Here are photos of Ronald himself with one of the donations, as well as photos of the blankets at books on display at the Hospital Library Section annual meeting and ice-cream social. We’ll be researching whether or not WRAP will continue in 2016 with the Toronto meeting, and will keep in touch. Thank you all so much again! Dena Hanson and Amy Frey

Martha Buckbee (UT Southwestern, Dallas Texas) donated this lovely lacey creation, paired with a Harry Potter adventure, for the 2012 WRAP project.

Some of our WRAP 2012 blankets have already arrived in Seattle, where Susan Klawansky (Seattle Children's) is collecting them for those of us that can't attend MLA. These were crafted by Karen Roth (Morton Plant Mease Health Care, Clearwater, FL), Doorothy Sinha (VA Medical Center, Minneapolis, MN), and Donna McCloskey (Presbyterian Hospital, Huntersville, NC).
