Blankets for Babies at Avera MarshallBaby Hat and Blanket Marathon

A baby blanket provides warmth and comfort for precious new babies. And as a child grows, the blanket’s role can grow too..

... as a play mat for an infant

... a security blanket for a toddler at naptime

... or a cape for a make-believe superhero.

Every baby born at Avera Marshall goes home with a snuggly warm blanket and hat, handmade by local volunteers. From hand-tied fleece blankets to knitted or crocheted blankets and hats, each is a treasured keepsake for families. The Avera Marshall Foundation provides funds for materials, and area crafters donate their talents to create the blankets and hats. Local merchant Fabrics Plus, organizes baby-craft marathons to encourage community involvement.
