Tender Loving Care

The Tender Loving Care Committee provides receiving blankets, quilts and knitted chemo caps to the University of New Mexico Hospital. We welcome knitters and sewers from the community who would like to contribute their knitting time to this program. You do not need to be an Assistance League member to participate.

In 2017-18 42 women donated 6,344 hours of handmade and knitted items to soften the difficulties some newborns and cancer patients meet.  1,848 pediatric patients and adult cancer patients at UNMH were the recipients  of their work.
