Blanketeers Fund Working to Combat COVID-19 Health Crisis
New Bremen Foundation’s newest Community Project Fund, New Bremen Blanketeers, has come up with a creative way to support the medical community during these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Typically the group makes blankets, hats, and other items to donate to local hospitals and various care facilities. To help with the current shortage of medical supplies for patients and healthcare workers, the group has shifted gears and begun sewing face masks. Such a creative and generous way to provide support during this time!
To make a monetary donation to support this cause, you can visit http://www.newbremenfoundation.org/donate-now/ or mail donations directly to New Bremen Foundation at P.O. Box 97, New Bremen, OH 45869.
Stay safe & healthy!

I want to take this opportunity to thank Doris for the beautiful blanket that she made for cancer patients. I am now the owner of that gorgeous blanket and it means the world to me. I recently underwent extensive surgery (termed “The Whipple”) at The James for late stage pancreatic cancer. I am 79 years of age and consider myself to be a walking miracle. I recovered from the surgery surprisingly well and my surgeon told me that I am cancer free although I am going thru chemotherapy at this time and for the next few months as a precautionary measure. On my last treatment in Celina, I was so cold that I just couldn’t seem to get warm. That is when I saw the blanket on top of the stack and helped myself to it. I actually felt guilty in many ways but the blanket has proved to be a godsend and it accompanies me on each and every treatment day. Doris, thank you from the bottom of my heart for kindness and generosity. Kudos as well to all of the ladies who are involved in making blankets. I cannot adequately express how your unselfish efforts and talents have impacted my life. God bless you all!
