About Heartwarmers

Gifts to warm a heart…

Heartwarmers is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose volunteers create fleece blankets and other gifts for children, adults and families in transition. We meet twice a month in Sisters, Bend and Redmond, working together to make simple (but delightful!) cut-and-tie blankets. Children’s blankets are paired with teddy bears, handmade by our volunteers; adult blankets are often bundled with hats, lotions, socks and bandanas. All of our gifts go to other non-profits for distribution to the children, adults and families they serve. Our partners include the Family Access Network, St. Charles Cancer Center and KIDSCenter, among others.
